Holy Family Reading Shelfie Challenge




As part of Holy Family’s drive on reading at home and in school we have created the ‘Holy Family Reading Shelfie Challenge’. Each half term we are challenging our children to read 30 books from a range of genres – which are listed below. These books will include the home readers given from school.

A member of staff will sign for each 10 books read.

10 books - Your child will receive a bronze certificate and 10 house points.

20 books - Your child will receive a silver certificate, 20 house points and a mention in the school newsletter.

30 books – Your child will receive a gold certificate, 30 house points, a mention in the newsletter and a personalised bookmark.

If your child successfully completes the ‘Holy Family Reading Shelfie Challenge’ they will move on to the platinum challenge and you will receive a separate letter about what this involves.

For every 10 books read the genres that must be included are;

  • Wordless picture book
  • Non-Fiction
  • Fantasy Fiction
  • Realistic Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Current news
  • E-books


Below is an example:


  • We thank you for your continued support and hope that you will encourage your child to widen their reading interests during this challenge.
