Summer holiday reading challenge a magnificent success

During the 2017 summer holiday all of the pupils at St George's Junior School took part in a special reading challenge. They were each given their own ‘reading passport’ to complete after each book they read.

The results were amazing with J3.1 winning the Upper Years' challenge by reading 232 books between them and Kingfishers winning the Lower Years' challenge by reading 223 books between them. 

Overall, 2,126 books were read in the Upper Years and 1,796 books read in Lower Years, which meant a whopping 3,922 books were read by pupils at St George’s Junior School.

The winning classes were rewarded with a tea party in the Junior School Library on their return to the School in September. Year 3 recited poetry at the tea party as it took place on National Poetry Day and Kingfishers celebrated with a Mad Hatters Tea Party.

Mrs McIntyre, Head of English, and the Librarians were all overwhelmed with such a successful reading challenge.
