Year 10 Reading Challenge:

This reading challenge is on-going - you have all been shared the reading challenge assessment document - 

You need to have selected your reading text that interest you to help you complete any of your chosen 3 reading assessments.  Here are some reading sites if you have not yet signed up to them:

Year 10 Reading Challenge                    
Your challenge is to stretch your reading muscles by reading a little and often – every day in fact.  Choose things to read that interest you and which you understand.
A “book” could include short stories, poetry, articles, fiction and non-fiction.  The activities you complete will be marked using Achieved, Merit or Excellence and must be finished by the end of the term. Your overall mark will be an average of your top three marks. As much as you can, try and do these activities digitally (using your Chrome book).

Identifying and explaining
Construct a timeline relating to one of your books – it might chart a character’s life or the plot of the story etc.
5 marks
Make a poster which could be used in a bookshop window to promote your book.

5 marks
Construct a web page/blog to tell an Internet audience about one of your books.

5 marks
Pretend you are a character from a book you have read.  Write a  diary entry (150-200 words) about a challenge you faced. Include what happened and your reactions.

10 marks
Choose a key incident from a book you have read.  Write a short script to create a short movie about this incident.

10 marks
Create a storyboard to retell your favourite incident in one of your books.  (Like a cartoon strip for planning a film scene.)
