Expanding Reading Challenge & Literacy Bingo

Y7 and 8 kicked off Semester 5 with an Expanding Reading Challenge aimed at encouraging them to read more widely by choosing books of different genres. From horror, to history  – Y7 collected their bingo cards in the Library this morning- every time they read one of the books on the card they get a stamp. They will then get house points and certificates when they complete the card. 

The challenge is to complete the card by the end of this academic year. Reading suggestions by genre are on display around the library to inspire students with their next book. These are the different genres on the list:

  • a ghost story
  • a thriller
  • a book by an aouthor you haven't read before
  • a book with a colour in the title
  • a science fiction book
  • a book of short stories
  • a graphic novel
  • a book with a heroine as the main character
  • a horror book
  • a book that made you think differently
  • a book with a one-word title
  • a non-fiction book
  • a fantasy novel
