The Big Diamond Jubilee Read

Added 11 Aug 2017

Pupils read their way around the Commonwealth in a reading challenge designed to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Pupils collect their reading miles in a special reading passport – 33,000 miles (or 11 hours) in total. Reading miles can be collected at home or school with motivational “check points” along the way. 

Resources available to support you in running the challenge include:

  • A class poster to show the route that pupils will take on their journey around the Commonwealth
  • A reading miles passport, where pupils record their reading
  • Certificates for pupils who complete the challenge plus checkpoint certificates for extra motivation along the way

These resources were created in partnership with Oxford University Press to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
