Ready Steady Read!

posted 4 Jun 2015, 02:36 by Tom Kentfield-Wells

To encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and school, we will be running a school sponsored read between Monday 1st and Sunday 7th June.

The project is being organised in conjunction with our local Usborne representative, Annemarie Clennell and all the money raised will go towards brand new books for our Academy and your child. The sponsorship your child raises will be split between your child and the school and your child will be issued with a voucher to spend at the Summer Fair following the sponsored read.

In addition to the sponsorship money, Usborne will also donate up to 60% of the total raised in EXTRA FREE BOOKS to the school. So for every £600 raised we will get an extra £360 in FREE Usborne books!

Please help us to enhance our reading resources for pupils by encouraging your child to spend a small amount of time each day either reading to themselves, to others, or being read to. They can read anything with words (for example comics, recipes, magazines) for as long or as little as they like.

Should you wish to support our sponsored read, please find enclosed a sponsorship form for your child .A reading log, to record the minutes they have spent reading, will be handed out after half term.

After the sponsored read, please send all the sponsorship money that your child has raised to the school by Wednesday 10th June.

On Wednesday 17th June we will be holding a prize giving assembly with the children and there will be prizes for the children who have read the most minutes and also raised the most money during the challenge. This will then be followed by the school fair in which Usborne will be there with a stall, where you can help your child spend their voucher choosing books for home.

Please support our sponsored read so that your child has more books to read, share and enjoy.
