Ready, Steady READ is Usborne’s simple sponsored reading challenge that helps to promote literacy in the classroom, introduce the importance of reading at home AND get FREE BOOKS for your school.
At Woodlands Academy we are taking part in the sponsored Usbourne Readathon!
Pupils will need to be sponsored by parents/carers and friends to read for as many minutes as they set their target to be over a week, we began our challenge on World Book Day.
This will encourage the pupils to read for enjoyment and give pupils the opportunity to take pride in helping to provide their school with new books too!
The more pupils read, the more money will be raised to buy books for our library and classroom, and the more FREE BOOKS our school will earn.
Whether it’s in school time or at home, children of all ages can spend any amount of time reading to raise funds for books. They can read books, comics, magazines, newspapers, menus, recipes, poems, leaflets, and instruction manuals – anything with words!
The money raised can be used in a variety of ways – the choice is ours:
Books for the school
Books for each class
Books for prizes
Sponsorship forms has been sent home with pupils, the deadline for forms to come into school is 10th March. Thank you for your support and happy reading!!!!!
