TImageo promote and reward reading, the librarian, in conjunction with teachers and the National Librarian, has designed the Junior reading challenge.

You will read towards the Bronze Reading Certificate, Silver Reading Certificate and Gold Reading Certificate. When you have finished reading and completed your response, return it to the library. You will receive your Reading Certificate in assembly, and your chapter book review will be published on the blog. Once you have attained one Reading Certificate, you can work towards the next Reading Certificate.

Note: You cannot use the same texts for each entry of one Reading Certificate – you need to read different articles/stories.  Also, readings used to gain one Reading Certificate cannot be used to gain the next Reading Certificate.
