Summer Reading Project

Dear Parent/Carer

This article is to inform you of Tabor Academy’s ‘Summer Reading Project’ which your child will be undertaking during this summer break. Each current year 7 will be participating in this project and will be presenting their work within their English classes when they return to school in September 2016 as year 8 students.

Summer Reading Challenge

  • Each student will receive a reading ‘log book’ (click to download) which must be signed by a parent/carer each time the student reads.
  • A minimum time of twenty hours reading has been set.
  • Reading material must include at least one fiction book that they will be using for their summer reading project presentation.
  • Students can also read non-fiction books, newspapers, graphic novels or comics for logging their twenty hours.
  • The County Library Summer Reading Challenge will also count towards their total if signed by a librarian.
  • There will be prizes for the top three students who have the accumulated the most hours.
