Summer Competition 2017

Over the course of the summer holidays, we challenge you to do as many things as possible from the following list. Good Luck!


10 Million Minutes

Over the last year, we entered a competition called '10 Million Minutes' where schools had to record how many minutes all children read over a week. Due to a fantastic effort from the parents and children, We came 13 out of 251 schools, reading for nearly 200,000 minutes over a week. Congratulations to everyone that was involved.

Extreme Reading Challenge

We asked the children to take part in an extreme reading challenge where we challenged you to take a picture of your child reading in an unusual or unique place; Here are a few of the entries.

Pen Pals

Each year we form links with schools, both in this country and abroad. We were really impressed with the quality of the letters our children have written. Well done!
