Highfields is nurturing a love of literature by launching the school’s Summer Reading Challenge 2019.
The challenge, being run by the English department throughout the summer holidays, is open to all year groups and will involve students reading a range of different books from various categories. These could include a book that has been set in a foreign land or a fantasy world; a book that has been recommended by a friend or a family member, and a book that has been made into a film or TV programme.
Students taking part in the challenge will have to complete an electronic journal on the Show My Homework portal, to be sent back to Mrs Allen by Friday 27th September.
Everyone who takes part will receive a letter home, a certificate and a pin badge. They will also be entered into a prize draw for the chance of winning £25 worth of books, as well as getting the opportunity to take part in a workshop with award-winning author, Christopher Edge, at Highfields in October.
A list of selected books for each category are available to all students on Show my Homework. All of the listed books are available in the LRC.
