Autumn Reading Challenge

Schools Autumn Reading Challenge

That Autumn feeling is easing in and what better way to indulge than finding a good excuse to sink in to some of our favourite books!

We believe that education is a key aspect of developing resilient communities, including supporting local libraries and improving literacy rates.

September not only means back to school but it also represents National Literacy Month. To celebrate this, Temwa is excited to be launching an Autumn Reading Challenge with local schools and we would like to invite your school to take part!

Students can be sponsored to read as many books as they can in 4 weeks! At the same time as raising invaluable funds for Temwa, it will be a brilliant reminder of how important literacy is and how lucky we are in the UK to have good access to books, school libraries and local libraries.

We have put together a challenge pack for schools that includes:

  • Information about Temwa
  • A challenge overview
  • How to take part
  • A book form for pupils to add what books they have read and give them their rating
  • A book review framework
  • A sponsorship form to collect donations

Prizes will be given to the students from each school who read the most books and write our favourite review of their favourite book.
