What will you be up to this summer? Wherever you go, whatever you do, don’t forget to take pictures of you reading!

To take part in our Holbrook Summer Reading Challenge ‘Caught Read Handed’, take photos of you, members of your family and friends reading in original and unusual places, eg. parks, beaches, foreign locations or even more simply city centres, shopping centres and supermarkets. You can use the entry form you were given or bring your photo into school in September. There is no limit to how many entries you submit!

Entries need to be submitted by 10th September. The most original entries will receive a prize.
