READATHON is due to start on Monday 5 th February. This will be a whole school sponsored read
throughout the month of February, culminating in Book Week (Mon 26 th Feb- Fri 2nd March – more on that later).
Our aim for Readathon is simply to create a buzz about reading. It really is not about making the children read things that they do not want, but just reading. Any reading. As such, the children can read anything that they would like to over the month: fiction, non-fiction, e-books, newspapers, comics etc. Literally, ANYTHING!
Readathon is open to everyone within the school community: students, staff, parents and other friends and family.
We hope that, not only will you encourage and support your child, but that you might also think about joining us; this would be the perfect opportunity to read something that you have always wanted to or to dust off that book that has been sat on your bedside table for months!
