It has been a great start to the new academic year for the Lower School Reading Challenge, with a number of children working hard to read 10 books and produce some wonderful reviews during the summer holidays and over the course of the half term.
Congratulations to the following who have been awarded their Reading Challenge badges this half term:
|Bronze||Amy 3NC, Eesan 4EP|
|Bronze Advanced||Dylan 5SB, Tiana 5TW|
|Silver||Ava 5SB, Soha 5AD, Maxi 5AD|
|Silver Advanced||Naya 5TW, Millie 5JD, Ava 5SB|
|Gold Advanced||Alicia 6AH|
|Diamond Advanced||Alicia 6AH, Maxwell 5JD|
NB – efforts have been made to ensure that all those who have received badges this term are named above. If your child’s name has been left out, this is an oversight on my part and I do apologise. Please do contact me and I will ensure that they are recognised next time.
Reading regularly is key to good academic progress and also supports their mental health and reading a wide range of different genres and exploring different topics, aiming for a balance of entertainment and challenge. Children can continue to work towards their Reading Challenge badges over the summer and I very much look forward to awarding many badges in the second half of the Autumn Term. Information on how the challenge works can be found on Firefly or your child can speak to their form teacher.
