Our two week Readathon concluded with a dress up day for children and staff to celebrate the characters from their favourite books. During this time, the children were encouraged to read as many books as they could to raise money through sponsorship by their families. Children were sponsored for a total sum, per book, per chapter or by length of time spent reading. Sponsorship forms should be sent back to school with money by Friday 24 March. All money raised will to go to the Readathon charity which provides books and storytellers for children in hospitals. many thanks to Livvy and Bo in Year 6 who were ambassadors for the event at our school.
