The Importance of Reading Over the Summer
By Ms Kate Watson-Penhall
Our long summer holiday is upon us, and ahead of us lie days and weeks of freedom. But this can be a daunting prospect for many. Reading is a way that you can fill your free time and keep up the reading skills that have been developed over the school year.
Travelling to other places is likely to be a lot more difficult this year. However, you can still be transported around the planet and into other worlds through the books you read.
Travel to the wizarding world by reading Harry Potter, or to Olympus through the Percy Jackson series. Travel into Narnia with Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, or see the world with The Snail and the Whale.
