The First Minister’s Reading Challenge aims to build on the work already taking place across the country to encourage children to read widely, explore a range of books and develop a love of reading. The main focus of the Challenge is to encourage reading for pleasure and support schools, libraries and communities to build reading cultures. There are a number of ways schools, teachers and pupils can engage with the challenge and the aim is to involve your local community and be creative around literacy. You can find more information and resources to support the Challenge on the Scottish Book Trust website, the link is below:
In addition, all our Literacy Co-ordinators now have a copy of the official PowerPoint presentation which you may use for staff training events or sharing with a wider audience.
