Christmas Reading Challenge

Where is the most extreme place you have ever read a book? Whether it is up a tree, on top of a mountain or standing on their head, we want your photos!

We want to create a real buzz around reading throughout the school, so in the Christmas holiday, we are setting you the challenge of finding the most extreme place to read a book and to photograph it or draw a picture of yourself reading there.

Photographs can be emailed to durdledoor@mosterton.dorset.sch.uk, or brought into school and handed to Miss Nash. The closing date for entries will be Friday the 18th January

The competition will be judged by Mr Smith and there will be a prize for the most extreme readers in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Obviously, we encourage you to keep safe (I wouldn’t recommend reading in the jaws of a crocodile!) but we are really looking forward to seeing who in school has such a passion for reading that they have to do it anywhere and everywhere!
