Summer Reading Challenge 2020

At Freshwater, we are passionate about making sure children's reading does not dip over the summer. Research shows that taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge, produced by The Reading Agency, can help maintain key literacy skills over the holidays. 

Each year we create a brand new drama and storytelling workshop to support the Summer Reading Challenge, bringing wondrous literary worlds to life for young readers.

Whether you are a library or borough wanting to welcome children into your venue this summer or a school looking to maintain key reading skills over the break, our workshops are a unique way to get your children enthused about the reading challenge.

Let's get them hooked on books!
