A huge thank you to everyone who got involved with the Sponsored Read which took place last month. I was staggered by the amount of time children had been reading for. One child had read for an outstanding 624 minutes over the course of just one week. All the money raised will be spent on buying new books for each classroom as well as to buy exciting non-fiction and fiction texts for our new library.
It has been lovely to walk through the corridors and be greeted by children telling me how much money they have raised or how many minutes they have been reading, what a buzz we have had about reading in our school. The final total raised was £1398.15 and with 60% added by Usborne, we will be able to purchase books to the value of £2237, which I am sure you will agree is very impressive and will hugely benefit the school. An enormous thank you once again for your ever continuing support.
Due to the staggering response there will be more than one winner per Key Stage - Ethan, Ruby, Job, Sofia, Labiqa, Luoana, Alice, Darcie and Faith. Children will be able to choose a book as their winning prize. Well done to all of you
