This years theme – Games & Sport
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is all about games and sports. Children will join a fictional team (and their animal mascots!) as they use their skills to weave their way through a summer obstacle course. Developed in collaboration with the Youth Sport Trust, the 2023 Summer Reading Challenge will celebrate play and participation, encouraging children to engage in games and sports in any way that best suits them.
Ready, Set, Read! will showcase how reading can be active and engaged, and can itself involve teamwork and community. On registration, children will receive a free starter pack and, if successful in achieving their reading target, will be awarded with a medal, certificate, other goodies….and a FREE SWIM at Church Stretton Leisure Centre.
