We are inviting children taught at home (and their parents/carers!) to take part in an amazing reading adventure. We’ve been helping schools to run Readathon’s sponsored read for 30 years, and we want children educated at home to be able to join the fun and enjoy the benefits too. We know that children are really motivated to read when they are raising money for other children. Plus, our research shows that Readathon encourages reluctant readers to read more, encourages avid readers to challenge themselves further and improves attainment. It’s also a great activity for Duke of Edinburgh, Guiding, Scouting etc.
