Reading Challenge 'Ready Steady Read'

Picture 1

To celebrate World Book Day (Thursday 5th March) and encourage a lifelong love of books and reading, we will be running a Reading Challenge between 2nd March and 15th March 2020.    


The project is being organised in conjunction with Usborne Books for Schools, and all the money raised will go towards brand new books for our school.  In addition to the sponsorship money, Usborne will also donate up to 60% of the total raised in EXTRA FREE BOOKS to the school; for every £600 raised, we will get an extra £360 in Usborne books!


It would be fantastic if you can help us to enhance our reading resources for pupils by spending a small amount of time each day reading with your child after school. Of course, it’s not just books that you can enjoy together: comics, magazines, recipes, menus, your favourite websites - anything with words that you can read together counts towards your total! 


If you are able to support our Reading Challenge, please find enclosed a sponsorship form for your child. A reading log, to record the minutes they have spent reading, will be given to them in class.


After the sponsored read, please send all the sponsorship money that your child has raised onto the JustGiving page (link below) by Wednesday 18th March 2020.


We look forward to having many more books for your child to read, look at, share and enjoy. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
