100 Million Minutes reading challenge
We are very excited to announce that we have signed up for the
100 Million Minutes Reading Challenge 2018 – a national reading
initiative from education charity Achievement for All.
Together with schools, early years settings and community groups up
and down the country, children and young people will try to read for a
collective 100 million minutes.
Why? Up to two in five children in disadvantaged communities across
the UK have difficulties with literacy. We know that introducing all
children to the habit of reading in everyday life can
improve communication skills and brighten future prospects.
The challenge will kick off on World Book Day (Thursday 1st March
2018) and run until Thursday 29th March. Each week we'll be
adding our reading minutes to our overall score, and doing our best to
come out on top.
