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.
Make a poster which could be used in a bookshop window to promote your book.
Construct a web page/blog to tell an Internet audience about one of your books.
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.
Choose a key incident from a book you have read. Write a short script to create a short movie about this incident.
Create a storyboard to retell your favourite incident in one of your books. (Like a cartoon strip for planning a film scene).
Write a review of one of your books suitable for publishing on your online blog (150-200 words)
Write a letter (150-200 words) to a friend telling them about this fantastic book you have just read and explaining why you think they might enjoy it too.
Create a short oral presentation (1-2 minutes) in which you tell people about one of your books and explain why you think it was worth reading. This can be done as a podcast and shared via your blog.
- Choose activities from the grid to present your ideas about some of the books you are reading this term. Make sure you include the name and author of the book you have chosen to focus on for each activity.
- You must choose an activity from each of the categories (Identifying and explaining; Creating; and Evaluating). By the end of the term, you will have done a total of 3 activities. You can only use one book for a maximum of 2 activities.
