Summer Reading Challenge Certificate Presentation

18th October 2019

The Summer Reading Challenge encourages 4-11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books (or more!) during the summer holidays. The theme for the 2019 Summer Reading Challenge was Space Chase, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

Participants teamed up with futuristic family The Rockets for an exciting space mission to track down books nabbed by a mischievous band of aliens. As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they received special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their collectable mission folders, young readers helped the Rockets solve clues, dodge asteroids and discover the missing books, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.

St Ives Librarian Jane Dews attended an Achievers Assembly on 18th October to congratulate the pupils on successfully completing the challenge and presented special Space Chase Certificates to the following:-

Edward Elgar, Kit McAvoy, Betty Hichens, Cassius Bone, Awen Carver, Lamorna Carver, Alice Catania, Ester Chown, Bryce Cruz, Myles Cruz, Keavy Devenny, George Griffith, William Griffith, Jared Ferguson, Harry Harley, Freya Michael, Louis Neesom, Lottie Parma, Lillie Taylor, Carley Whear, Olivia Whear, Emily Widdows, Kit Widdows and Alfred Wootton

Well done to everyone who took part!
