Summer Reading Challenge for new students
New students who are joining us in in Year 7 in September have been encouraged to take part in our Summer Reading Challenge during the holidays.
New students who are joining us in Year 7 in September have been encouraged to take part in our Summer Reading Challenge during the holidays.
All the new students have been given a copy of Superhero Street by Phil Earle and an activity sheet to complete ahead of Mr Earle’s visit to CBA at the end of September.
Students are encouraged to read the book and finish the activity sheet over the holidays but special sessions will be organised next term for any students who have been unable to do this.
CBA Librarian Amy McKay said: “Superhero Street is a really fun book. There is a lot of heart in it and it’s funny too.
“It really is a good all-round read and I think you would be hard pushed to dislike this book.
“We started the Summer Reading Challenge because we think that it is important that students continue to read over the holidays. We know that nationally there is a drop in students reading during the holidays and this is one of the things we do at CBA to counteract that.
“We want students to know that we believe reading independently and for pleasure is important.
“We’re really looking forward to Phil’s visit. He is an interesting author who has had a really interesting career.
“He writes fantastically for this age group but he also writes for older readers too which is great in terms of this challenge because it means the students are being introduced to an author they can continue to read as they get older.”
