Get ready, get steady to read!! Monday 12th - Sunday 18th October


Dear Parent/Guardian,


To encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and school, we will be running a school sponsored read between Monday 12th to Sunday 18th October.

The project is being organised in conjunction with our local Usborne Representative, Lisa Colley, and all the money raised will go towards brand new books for our school.

In addition to the sponsorship money, Usborne will donate up to 60% of the total raised in EXTRA FREE BOOKS to the school. So if we raise £600, we will get an extra £360 in FREE Usborne books!


There will also be a competition running – the 3 children that read for the most amount of minutes will each win a book!


Please help us to enhance our reading resources for pupils by encouraging your child to spend a small amount of time each day either reading to themselves, to others, or being read to. They can read anything with words (for example comics, recipes, magazines) for as long or as little as they like. 


Should you wish to support our sponsored read, please find enclosed a sponsorship form for your child, which includes a reading log to record the minutes they have spent reading at home. The school will encourage the children to record their minutes reading in school in their homework diaries.


After the sponsored read, please send all the sponsorship money that your child has raised to the school by Friday 23rd October


Cheques should be made payable to Lisa Colley.


Please support our sponsored read so that your child has more books to read, share and enjoy.
