Reading – every day

Over the Summer Holidays, the best thing you can continue to do is read every day – it can be fiction or non-fiction; it can be books, magazines, kindle, e-books; it might be stories, recipes, game instructions, biographies, news articles or an information text.

Reading is even better when you talk about what you read with someone else (either in person, on the phone or over the internet) – explaining plot twists, characters and settings; sharing knowledge you have acquired; explaining game rules; discussing what is happening in the world; or even sharing food you have made.
