“We are excited to launch our Reading Champions Challenge, we like to encourage students and staff of all ages to make reading a priority activity in their lives,” explained Mrs Irena Savova, Librarian. “We want people to make reading a regular part of their routine whether they’re reading solo or together with their classmates, parents, or friends. We want to help students to develop a life-long love of reading. It is very important to instil in young people a need and desire to read.”
Pupils can use their subject reading lists to complete the reading challenges and become a Reading Champion!
All the books on the subject reading lists can be found in the school library.
“We are enjoying promoting reading across the school and seeing the benefits and pleasures of this,” explained Mr Jamie Sharrock, English teacher. “We know that students who read, gain a greater understanding of the world in which they live, they learn to appreciate how writers use language for effect and they extend their repertoire of vocabulary.”
Mr Alex Hren, Head Teacher, said “The more students read, and the more challenging their reading is, the more successful they will become in all subject areas and ultimately in life. This has been well researched over the years.”
