I am setting a challenge for children and young people across my constituency to read as many books as they can by Friday 3 July 2020. Anyone participating in this challenge can email my office atWithamMP@parliament.uk with the list of books they have read and a short summary of which was their favourite and why by Friday 3rd July 2020.It would be useful if every entry has the child’s name,age and school included.Every child who participates will receive a certificate of participation and the winner of the most books read and best summary will receive a prize.
Alternatively, if children do not wish to participate in this challenge, they can participate in Get Witham Reading by writing a book review or a poem and sending this to my office atWithamMP@parliament.uk. Every child that participates will receive a certificate of participation.
You could also draw a picture of your favourite part of the story, or draw a picture of your favourite character and send this in also. I have attached the official letter telling you more about this challenge.

Can you draw a picture from the story? You may want to draw a caterpillar, a selection of the foods that the caterpillar ate. You may want to draw a picture of the beautiful butterfly she turns into at the end?
I have attached some lovely border paper you could use.
Using the word mat to help you can you label what you have drawn. Remember to hold your pencil correctly and have a go at copying the letters. Remember to keep all your fantastic work and bring it into school once we do return.
I have also attached another sheet to see if you can retell the story to an adult. Can you remember what happens at the beginning of the story? Where is the story set? What happens at the end? Ask your grown up to write what you say on the paper.
I cannot wait to see your drawings and how you were able to retell the story!
