Winter Mini Challenge 2023
This Winter Mini Challenge, we’re inviting primary school classes to create a dazzling reading display showcasing what you read over the holidays. The more imaginative the display, the better!


  1. Grand Prize: Book bundle of 150 books for your school
  2. Runner-up: Bug Club Reading Corner KS1 pack of 82 books, gifted by Pearson

To enter the prize draw, send a photo of your reading display to [email protected].

Entries open Monday 8 January until Friday 2 February.

Use this time to get together with your class and plan your display. What books will you be reading? How will you showcase them on your display?

Use our free print outs to get started. Download them on our Resource Bank here.

Nurture creativity and a love of reading this winter. 

Ready, Set, Read!
