British Council To Bring 'Reading Challenge' To Delhi

In Delhi, the event would be held from November 4 to December 8.

 

NEW DELHI: Celebrating the 50th anniversary of moon landing, British Council in collaboration with the Reading Agency will bring a “Reading Challenge” to Delhi for children aged 5-11 years. The event aims to encourage children to read for pleasure, improve their English, and become confident readers. In this, participating kids must read a minimum of 6 books in 6 weeks from a collection of 35 new, hand-picked books. The British Council would issue the books to the children on a returnable basis.

In the event children would learn new things like writing book reviews and how to reflect on a book and express views as a reader and a reviewer. They would also review characters from the books and develop reflective, communication, creativity and imagination skills. There would also be a storytelling and writing session where children would get to learn how to structure a story by developing the characters and main action of the story.

In Delhi, the event would be held from November 4 to December 8.

The ‘Reading Challenge’ would also be held at Kolkata, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad in November
