World Book Day 2014 Celebrations

Extreme Reading Winners 2014

Extreme Reading Winners 2014

As part of our world book day celebrations the English Department launched its annual Extreme Reading competition.  The entries were numerous and varied as usual – but the winners were announced as Ben Thomas and Ethan Williams for the pupils and Mrs  Hill for the staff.

We were thrilled to announce that over £380 had been raised by the Year 7 classes who all took part in Readathon as part of their independent learning last term. Each Year 7 pupil was challenged to read 6 books in 6 weeks.  Not only did the majority complete this challenge but many actually exceeded it.  The money raised goes to a variety of charities for children including the Teenage Cancer Trust.  A big thank you to Mrs Easton for her work in organising the annual Readathon Challenge.

At the recent Year 7 parents’ evening many of the Mums, Dads and carers commented on how the event had re-enthused their sons about reading.
