As you know at Whitehouse Common we are participating in ‘The Book Award’ challenge. We are doing this to encourage all children to read a range of books from different genres and authors for pleasure.
The list of different ‘challenges’ can be found under ‘curriculum’- ‘book awards’ - ‘year 2’ on the school website.
Once the children have completed all thirty challenges, they will be placed into a prize draw at the end of the year, where they will be in with a chance of winning a… Kindle Fire!
Mr. Vickers recommends reading ‘The Twits’, Mrs. Hollis recommends ‘A Very First Poetry Book’ and Mrs. Parkes recommends ‘The Hodge Heg’.
If you want to complete some challenges at home, please clearly write ‘Book Award’ as well as the title of the book and the challenge it achieves in your child’s planner.
