Year 7 take the Readathon challenge

06 October 2017

Over the course of the summer holiday, the new Year 7 girls were invited to take part in a sponsored read. They were provided with a reading list that included literary classics such as, ‘Peter Pan’ by J.M Barrie, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ by Frank L Baum, ‘Five Children and It’ by E. Nesbit. Also on the list were exciting new releases such as Jacqueline Wilson’s newest release ‘Wave me Goodbye’, and Katherine Randell’s delightful novel ‘Roof Toppers’.

Year 7 spent the afternoon on Friday 29 September in forms discussing the books they had read (while tucking into some sweet treats) and writing ‘Tweet’ style book reviews limited to just 140 characters. Prizes will be awarded over the coming weeks for those girls who have read a vast array of books.

A whopping £856.22 was raised for Edward’s Trust, a charity which supports bereaved families.

Well done, Year 7!

Ms Jones-Owen
Head of Year 7
