Reading Challenge 2021-22
At Hampton Hill Junior School, we are keen to encourage a love of reading in our children. As a result of this, we are relaunching our HHJS Reading Challenge, running from September 2021 until July 2022. All pupils are involved and are encouraged to read a wide range of reading material. They can choose from fiction (stories, plays or poetry books) and non-fiction (information books about any subject that they enjoy). Each child will receive a reading challenge card and the books that they read will be recorded in their cards and their reading resilience will be celebrated in celebration assemblies and rewarded as follows:
10 books – (including 2 from the list) Bronze achieved – bookmark
20 books – (including 5 from the list) Silver achieved – certificate
30 books – (including 10 from the list) Gold achieved – Gold Reader badge
50 books (including 20 from the list) – Platinum achieved – book token
There are various lists available that include a wide range of books that children should try to read in Years 3 & 4 and in Years 5 & 6. These include classic books, modern classics and recently published authors. These lists are available below and a selection of titles can be found on the back of each child’s reading card. Many of these titles can be found in the school library and there is a shelf specifically designated to this, to help children to identify these books.
Please find below the lists of 100 books to read in Years 3 &4 and Years 5 & 6
