Event description

Description

The First Minister’s Reading Challenge is an exciting reading initiative delivered by the Scottish Book Trust on behalf of the Scottish Government. The Challenge is open to every pupil in Primary 1-7 in Scotland and opens on Monday 4th September.

The main focus of the Challenge is to encourage reading for pleasure and support schools, libraries and communities to build reading cultures. We know that reading journeys can be personal to every single child but, to encourage and motivate schools and pupils to get involved, we’ve set a number of challenges we hope will inspire you.

If you are a P1-7 teacher or librarian and would like to find out more, please come along to one of our 4 regional events. This will be an opportunity to ask questions, hear about the successes of last year and share ideas with professionals in your area.
