We are gearing up once again for our charity READATHON week beginning Monday March 11th.
During this week, all children from Year 1 to Year 6 will be given extended opportunities to read for pleasure within their lessons. They will be sponsored to do so and all money raised will go to three children’s cancer charities. On the Thursday of the week, children are invited to come to school dressed as a favourite book character. We will be spending the morning in mixed aged groups in literacy workshops doing lots of varied and exciting activities linked with books and reading. In the afternoon, we will come together as a school and share what we have been doing.
We know from experience that the children love these integrated days so I’m sure that this year will be no different.
More detailed information and a sponsorship card will be given to each pupil on the preceding Thursday – 7th March which is World Book Day so each child will also be receiving a £1 book token too.
So here’s to many happy hours immersed in books, reading and everything that flows from it!
