Last term, our Key Stage 3 students took part in Readathon. This is a national initiative with two fantastic aims: to improve children’s engagement in reading for pleasure and raising money for worthwhile causes. This year, the money goes to funding children’s wards on hospitals to enable them to provide reading books and live storytelling sessions for children in hospital. If you wish to know more about Read for Good, this is their website: https://readforgood.org/
During our Festival of Literature and Language, students spent a week beginning their English lessons with private reading and using their homework time to read for pleasure and collect sponsor money. Some individual students raised over £30 each! We are proud to announce that this initiative raised £895.37 for the Read for Good charity, and we also receive book vouchers for our school library. A big thank you to all students and their parents who supported Readathon in 2021.
