Summer Read-A-Long

All students from Y6 to Y9 are invited to take part in our Summer Read-A-Long in which, everyday from Monday 20th July, students will be able to log on to Google Classroom to find videos to watch and listen.

The read-a-long is our response to some recently published research into the impact of being read to, and how this can accelerate students’ progress in literacy. The study found that when students were read two novels, one after the other and read to for at least 20 minutes per day, on average their progress in literacy improved by 9 months.

We’d appreciate your support in encouraging your child to take part. There is no requirement to purchase copies of the novels unless you’d like to, and further details will be posted on Google Classroom tomorrow.
