Extreme Reading Challenge!

Send us a photo of your extreme reading!

The challenge has been set - are you an Extreme Reader? Will you be the most Ultimate Extreme Reader that GFS has ever seen?!

Books don’t need electricity!

We can read them anywhere and everywhere!

We are inviting ALL children to take part in the annual Garden Fields Extreme Reading Challenge during the summer holidays. 

Think about new and different, exciting, fun and SAFE places you can enjoy reading a book.

Then ask a parent/carer to take a photo of you reading in your extreme location.

Bring your photo in or email it to library@gardenfields.herts.sch.uk when school starts in September.

Have fun Extreme Reading!
