This week in pupil council we discussed the progress of the readathon. Lots of children have been busy reading books, comics and even listening to audio books before bed. Caleb from Oak class is on his 3rd Roald Dahl book!
This is very exciting as the children are eager to raise money for much needed books in children’s wards across our area but with the added bonus of finding a love of books and reading!
Pupil council fed back to their classes and unfortunately there are many pupils that haven’t even started the challenge.
Each child should be reading at home daily so the added incentive of raising money to do this should make even the most reluctant readers want to pick up a book. It doesn’t have to be much, 50p a book should raise at least £1.50 per week per child which would amount to a fantastic achievement as a whole school!
We have 1 week left to complete the challenge as sponsor forms need to be back by 5th July. So let’s get reading!
