Performance artist Breis came to the East Street library on Tuesday to help SE1 children write and perform their own rap poetry at one of the many free Reading Rollercoaster sessions on offer during the summer.
Research has shown that the Summer Reading Challenge boosts the confidence of children taking part and has a positive impact on their reading ability when they begin a new year at school. Eighty percent of children who have taken part in the challenge in previous years consider themselves better readers as a result1.
Forthcoming sessions at SE1 libraries include Fairground Fun at East Street Library on Tuesday 10 August at 2.30pm and John Harvard Library (Borough High Street) on Friday 13 August at 2.30pm. Details on the Southwark Council website.
