100 Fiction Books Challenge

We have launched a new reading challenge which encourages all our children to read 100 fiction books before they leave primary school. In practice we hope that they will read many more, but the Times Educational Supplement has compiled a list of 100 ‘must reads’ and we are using this list as a basis for our challenge. You can download a copy of the list below and we have warned the library in North Berwick that there might be increased demand for some of these titles—especially over the half term period.
The challenge is suitable for all ages and Nursery plan to adapt it for use in their setting with many of the books being read to the children before they can actually read them for themselves.
The challenge is split into levels and children can apply for recognition once they have read 10 books on the list. There are 10 levels and a certificate is awarded in assembly for each level achieved. We hope that this will encourage reading for enjoyment and that you will continue to support reading at home. Each time a book is finished the child needs a signature from either a teacher or parent/carer on their application form100 books list
