All aboard the AHMAT Reading Routes!
Our new ‘reading routes’ challenges is inspired by the underground and making journeys to read books across a range of genres. Each coloured lined on the reading routes map corresponds to a different genre. These include classics and traditional tales, poetry and rhyme, non-fiction and lots more. At school, we have shelves stocked with specially selected books for pupils to loan out and begin reading. When each pupil has read a book, this must be written in their reading record and they will have their reading routes ticket ‘punched’ when the book is completed, just like a real train ticket! If a pupil has a book they would particularly like to read from outside of school, this can also be matched up to a genre and will contribute towards the challenge.
Pupils can choose to read across the genres, to complete a whole line and to complete their whole ticket. There will be prizes for the following:
- Reading one book from each genre – a certificate celebrated in celebration assembly.
- Reading across one complete genre line (5 books) – a certificate celebrated in celebration assembly.
- Reading across all the genres and completing the reading routes ticket (30 books) – a badge presented in celebration assembly.
