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 2015 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 below:
• Prep to Year 2 students are challenged to read or experience 20 books. Experiencing books can include listening to stories, shared reading or reading picture books.
• Students in Year 3 to Year 4 are challenged to read 20 books
• Students in Year 5 to Year 6 are challenged to 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 from the 19th of May and continues through to Friday 28th of August 2015. Certificates will be distributed to schools during October.
