Since we launched the Blue Coat Reading Challenge along with the new Recommended Reading Lists back in November the children have shown an incredible commitment to reading and reviewing books – an amazing 925 book reviews have been written by Prep Children and nearly 8,000 books issued to the whole school in that time. As Barack Obama said, in a quote that will adorn the new Pre-Prep Library – “Reading makes all other learning possible”. Given all that reading there must be some really impressive learning going on!
The very keenest readers in Year 6 were the first to receive recognition from Mr Neeson as they were presented with a certificate and biscuit at lunchtime today. Children from the other year groups will receive their honours next week and as they enter their new year groups all children can look forward to a new reading list to start working through!
