Last week in library we started the Premier’s Reading Challenge. The Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, has challenged every student in Victoria to read a set number of books. Grade four students need to read 15 books before the 9th September 2016. 10 of these books need to be from the ‘challenge list’ and 5 of them can be ‘free choice’.
There is an extensive range of books that students can choose from and the list is updated regularly by an expert panel.
A copy of the book lists can be found at:
Miss Browne reminded us about the importance of choosing ‘good fit’ books and that we read to read a variety of genres and authors.
Did you know that since the challenge began in 2005, over two million students have read an incredible 38 million books?
Can you recommend any Premier’s Reading Challenge books for other students to read?
