The children have taken part in a sponsored Readathon in order to raise money for books. The aim was to raise £600 so that we could get a 60% additional discount from Usbourne. We achieved our aim and raised just over this amount which meant that the school have managed to order nearly a £1000 pounds worth of books including dictionaries and atlases!

Alongside this we thought it would be good fun to get the children to take pictures of themselves reading in unusual places and record how long they had read for. Each class were to nominate the person who had recorded evidence of having read for the longest amount of time. The winners for the longest amount of reading were:

Year 6-
Amber: Lucy – 682mins
Zircon – Juliet – 404mins

Year 5
Jade – Poppy – 400mins
Quartz – Holly – 360 mins

Year 4
Coral – Evie – 280 mins
Jet – Charlotte – 355 mins

Year 3
Ruby – Joao – 205mins
Topaz – Lucy – 450 mins

Each child will receive a book and a certificate.
