Christ Church Reading Ambassadors from Y4-Y6 at the Pendle Reading Challenge #read to achieve' Dragons Den'!

Snuggle up with a book!

We had a  cosy afternoon snuggling up with our Christmas  books in our house teams. Year 6 children took their reception buddies and we spent a lovely couple of hours  sharing stories with the teachers and each other whilst enjoying lounging in our Onesies - our teddies even  came along. It was just what we needed after a yummy Christmas dinner (thanks Mrs Sutton!).

Pendle Reading Challenge- the Launch! What a brilliant morning we had- 7 of the reading ambassadors, accompanied by Mr Peers and Mrs Rayner, travelled to Holt House Rugby club to join 15 other schools for the Launch of the Pendle Reading challenge.   It was very exciting as the TV cameras were there from Granada news - we were on the T.V! At the launch we had to read a poem and share our favourite books. Most intriguing was the scrapbook challenge which all the schools are collaborating on- our challenge is Stories from other places. We are meeting this week to discuss our ideas.

Parents - Developing Reading with your child...

Darren from Colne Library came to tell us about this year's Summer Reading Challenge. Get down to the library at the end of term to sign yourself up. There are lots of free gifts and a certificate if you manage to complete the challenge.

Teachers love reading too! Can you spot photos of teachers reading around school? Take a peek at these photo collages...

Year Two

You can find out more about the books at


At Christ Church we will be celebrating the joy of reading by enjoying a ‘Snuggle up with a Book’ Day. We are encouraging the children to come to school dressed up in onesies/pyjamas ready to enjoy a good book and escape into the magical world of reading.
