Sign Up for the Summer Reading Challenge!

10 July 2024 (by admin)

With the summer holidays first approaching its time to sign up for this year's Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge is back over the six weeks holidays, and once again we would like as many Millfield pupils to take part as possible.

Pupils can sign up NOW to take part in the challenge.

What is the Summer Reading Challenge?

The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children to keep reading during the school summer holidays – and to develop their love and enjoyment of reading.

Children aged 4 to 11 years old are invited to set a reading goal and collect rewards for their reading. It’s completely FREE to take part. 

It is an amazing way to boost children’s confidence and improve their reading skills as well as develop their love of reading.

Why should my child sign up?

  • They will be better prepared to return to school in September.
  • The challenge supports their move into a new year group.
  • It will help them become more independent in their reading and boost confidence and self-esteem.
  • The library provides free access to books and fun family activities all through the summer and library staff are on hand to offer support and book recommendations.

How can my child take part?

Simply visit Tamworth library and sign up!

Your child will:

  • Set a reading goal for the summer and borrow and read any books, eBooks and audiobooks.
  • Receive a challenge poster and collect special stickers and rewards for reading.

You can also sign up online at

Signing up online will unlock digital badges and online rewards, including a printable certificate.

Reading is the most important skill that we must teach our pupils to ensure that they become fluent readers as quickly as possible.

The Summer Reading Challenge can really help support our aim of making every pupil at our school a confident, fluent reader who not only reads to learn but also reads for pleasure, and we would therefore urge all pupils to take part.
