Lea Forest Primary Academy and Glebe Farm Public Library have worked closely together to promote the 'Summer Reading Challenge' to our pupils. This national, free event encourages 'Reading for Pleasure' and helps the pupils retain their literacy skills during the summer break.

This year’s challenge is called ‘The Mythical Maze’ and to complete it the pupils challenge themselves to read 6 library books of their choice and either write 6 reviews or draw 6 pictures based on the books. Your child can sign up for this at your local public library from 14 July 2014. Children will be able to collect rewards along the way. PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILDREN TO JOIN THE CHALLENGE AND MAKE LEA FOREST THE MOST REPRESENTED SCHOOL IN THE AREA! Those children who complete the challenge are invited to a special awards celebration organised by the public library. The local libraries in this area are:
