Join the Winter Mini Challenge

Libraries Team, 01 December 2022 - Reading Challenge

The Winter Mini Challenge encourages children to continue reading over the winter holidays with a free, digital platform offering rewards for reading.

Come along with us in this snowy challenge

Following the success of this year's Summer Reading Challenge, The Reading Agency is once again teaming up with Science Museum Group to continue the Gadgeteers theme. For their next reading adventure, children will be able to join the six Gadgeteers as they find themselves in a snowy situation!

With activity ideas and resources from Science Museum Group, the Winter Mini Challenge will help to spark children's curiosity about the world around them, inspiring them through creativity and invention.

How to take part?

To take part, children simply read three books or more of their choice. Every time they finish a book, they add it to their Challenge website profile and leave a short book review.

Reaching their online reading goal will unlock a special virtual badge and a new wintery Gadgeteers certificate to print off and keep it. There are also fun activities, videos, reading recommendations, plus an exciting competition!

Children can visit the Winter Mini Challenge website from 1 December 2022 until 20 February 2023 to start rating and reviewing their books and enjoying the online activities.
