Jinibara State School students will once again have the opportunity to participate in The Premier’s Reading Challenge. In the past we have had a phenomenal response to the challenge, with hundreds of students meeting their reading targets and receiving certificates from the Premier.
One of the most important skills we can give to our children is a love of literacy. As well as being fun, the challenge aims to boost children’s literacy skills by encouraging students to read widely for pleasure and learning, to develop their imagination, and to cultivate a passion for literature.
The 2016 Premier's Reading Challenge is open to all students from Prep to Year 6. To successfully complete the Challenge, students need to read the number of books indicated in the table below:
Number of books need to read to complete the Challenge
Prep to Year 2: read or experience 20 books
Years 3 to 4: read 20 books
Years 5 to 6: read 15 books
Experiencing books can include shared reading, listening to stories, or reading picture books.
Participating students will receive a reading log to track the books they have read throughout the challenge. The challenge begins this week and continues through to Friday 26th of August 2016. Certificates will be distributed to schools during October.
