Summer Slide – Reading Challenge

‘Summer Slide’ is a term used to describe the drop in reading age that occurs over the summer holidays. It sounds scary but it actually follows a common pattern: the more you practice the piano, the better you get; the more you immerse yourself in another language, the more fluent you become. It’s the same with reading – if children stop practising, they become less fluent and so have to restart learning when they return to school each September.

To support this, we’re running a Summer Slide Reading Challenge over the summer holiday. The course will involve reading six short books – one for each week to ensure that children’s literacy levels remain where they need to be by September.

We will recommend the texts for the first five weeks (all short reads for different ages and abilities) and then the children will choose their own text for the last week. Each book is supported by an online session which will be pitched at the appropriate skill level – from basic comprehension through to character analysis for older students.
