BookSlam, combined with its Welsh-language counterpart (Darllen Dros Gymru), is Wales’ largest reading competition and is open to years 3-6 across the country – for free! The Welsh Books Council is committed to promoting Welsh literacy and encouraging reading in schools. It is from these core values that BookSlam was formed. The competition has been revamped for 2014 and is set to be bigger and better than ever.
The competition fits neatly within the National Literacy Framework and with a cash prize incentive and free books to children who reach the final rounds, there’s no reason for primary schools not to get involved.
