Animal Agents, Summer Reading Challenge 2017 and Arts Award 

Arts Award are very happy to be working with The Reading Agency again this year on Animal Agents, Summer Reading Challenge 2017. This wil be the fifth year we have worked together to support children to achieve Discover through the summer Reading Challenge and we hope it will be the best yet! 

To complete the Summer Reading Challenge children have to read 6 library books over the summer holidays but libraries will be offering all sorts of extra fun activities and in some this will include Arts Award. 

To offer Arts Award Discover libraries will need to order a special version of the Animal Agents' activity booklet from The Reading Agency or use the downloadable pdf versions (which also allow more space!).



You can download a pack including

  • pdfs of the Arts Award pages
  • A5 flyers of information for parents (low and high resolution)
  • a mapping showing how the pages fit with Arts Award Discover
  • a reference copy of the full activity booklet for planning

Don't forget you can include drawings, posters and photos alongside the activity booklet as evidence for Discover!

If you have delivered Discover before why not think about offering Explore?  This is what Staffordshire adviser Liz Gardener said about their Explore project:

`Running Arts Award Explore alongside the Summer Reading Challenge helps to engage 8-10 year olds in completing the Summer Reading Challenge.  By this age many of the children will have done it 2 or 3 years in a row and are not interested in it. As part of their Arts Award work it has relevance again to them.
