The UK charity Schoolreaders is challenging members of Book Clubs to take part in a quiz anytime between 1st March and 24th May 2018
Did you know that in 2017 one in four children aged 11 failed to reach the government’s required reading standards?
This can have lifelong consequences.
Schoolreaders helps to address this problem by finding volunteers to read one-to-one with children in primary schools, at no cost to the school. It costs Schoolreaders an average of just £15 to provide reading support to one child for a whole academic year.
By taking part in the Book Club Quiz Challenge you will be helping Schoolreaders to reach many more children this year.
My own Book Club is taking part.
I sent off to the information pack, which can be requested here
If you have any questions, email email@example.com, or telephone 01234 924222
The pack includes some wonderful bookmarks and postcards.
If you are interested, let them know on Facebook here
One of our Book Club members immediately volunteered to become a school readers, helping children learn to read in a local school of her choice. I'll let you know how we get on with our quiz next week.
