Golden Tickets

Tuesday 14th July

 

Mr Wonka and his team of Oompa Loompas are excited to announce a NEW challenge:

The Oompa Loompas have thought up lots and lots of ways to read. Each time you complete one of the reading challenges, simply date the bingo sheet. It doesn't matter what you read - Mr Wonka really wants you to have fun with your reading!

 

Please complete as many of the challenges as you can and bring  your summer reading bingo cards back to school in the new term. We would like to see all the cards, even if you don't get to complete the whole bingo card. 

 

Mr Wonka would also love to see a photo of you reading for one of the challenges so that we can make a reading display in the new term.

 

And... A great big thank you to everyone who has entered all the golden ticket challenges - you truly are reading CHAMPs!

 

Have fun and enjoy your summer holiday!

 

Keep reading! smiley
