Bookworm Reading Challenge

Throughout the Summer Term, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children are taking up the Book Worm Reading Challenge. The aim of this challenge is to fall in love with a variety of exciting, interesting and engaging books! The children can read the books themselves, with an adult or even listen to it as an audio book. Once the children have finished a book, they complete a book review sheet and move their Bookworm one step on their Classroom Competition Board. Certificates are awarded in our celebration assembly for children who have reached the following milestones: 10 books – Bronze; 20 books – Silver and 30 books – Gold. Teachers will also pick one child from their class who they considered to be “Book Worm of the Term” to win a trip to a book shop with Ms Rutherford.

Children in Key Stage 2 have been given a list of age appropriate books, whilst Key Stage 1 are measured by how many of their stage books they have read at home to adults.


“I try to read one book a night with my mummy. I have just received a silver certificate in our assembly from Mr Bowman for reading 20 books! I’m going to put this on my bedroom wall. I also like reading books about The Wombles at home.” William Y1

“I have read eight books so far from the list provided and I am near the top of the class leaderboard! When I complete my book review for our teacher to read, I ask my dad to check the questions that I have written. I try to read about 10-15 pages of a book each night before bedtime. My favourite book so far from our list, has been; Bill’s New Frock by Anne Fine, it’s very funny.” Nidal Y3 “I have received my bronze certificate and have read 11 books so far, I am top of the competition in Y5.  I really enjoyed reading Phoenix by S.F. Said. It’s a really fast paced book about a boy who is half human/alien that has a magical adventure through space. I read as much as I can, I read this book in about 4 days which has 480 pages.” Stephen Y5

“I’m currently reading; Awful Auntie by David Walliams, it’s very funny. This is my 8th book from our class list in the competition. My favourite book so far has been; Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell, which our class Teaching Assistant; Janine, had recommended to me. It’s an adventure story about an orphaned girl that is found on an abandoned shipwreck.” Chelsea Y6

“My favourite book so far has been; Billionaire Boy by David Walliams. It’s about a boy who wants a proper friend that doesn’t just like him for his money. I try to read about 10 pages of a book each night.” Anand Y3
