#Blackpool30 Reading Challenge

St John's are taking part in the 'Blackpool 30 Reading Challenge'. 

Families in Blackpool are invited to take part in a reading challenge to read for 30 minutes a day for pleasure.

The Blackpool 30 reading challenge is for everyone regardless of age. The main message is that reading is fun and good for your wellbeing.

A popular statistic is that 30 minutes of reading a day can increase levels of literacy so we want to see children and adults form a regular reading habit.

It aims to build a positive reading culture through reading for pleasure.

Make it your mission to share the message that reading is fun and that reading with a child is an important part of parenting!

Share your journey by taking a picture of what you're reading and upload it to social media using the hashtag #Blackpool30


At St John's we are taking part in the reading competition until the end of the spring term and we aim to read as much as possible and share our progress on our school Facebook and Twitter page. Prizes will be awarded to schools at the start of the summer term.
