OBH Summer Reading Project 2012

This summer we are starting an exciting reading project across the school … for children and adults alike.
All pupils will receive a letter detailing the scheme, but we are also asking staff and friends to join in too! To take part, simply go on holiday with a good book and buy a postcard or take a photo. Send to the address below with a sentence about where you were and what you were reading at the time.

For example: In Devon I read ‘Great Expectations’ by Charles Dickens. For those not going away, we would love photos reading at home or a postcard of the local area:

Everything we receive will be put on display pinpointing were we went what we enjoyed reading.
