WORLD BOOK DAY SUCCESS

DIDN'T WE DO WELL!

As a school community we read over one million words during morning registration.

Students, support staff, teachers, teaching assistants and School Meals Staff joined together and read 1000 words each from the pack of resources our Librarian, Mrs Harwood, put together for us.

The selection of short stories, extracts and opening chapters from books ensured a peaceful start to the day and some real success stories. The biggest success, literally, was the actual number of words we read (1,140,679) but what made the event really worthwhile was the number of people - students and adults- who sought out the complete story from the library after being hooked by the extract.
