Read For My School

The children in year 5 and 6 are taking part in a DFE national reading competition. The children have logged onto the secure competition website and are asked to read a book from each category (there are 8 categories in total) between 21st January and  22nd March 2013.

When the children have logged to say they have completed reading a book they will be asked two questions to explore how they felt about the book they have just read.

We have many of the books featured on the reading list in school for the children to borrow and some of the titles are also available for children to read online. Children could also visit the library in Shard End to borrow a book they would like to read.

Children who take part can win individual awards for:

The most books read

The most interesting written responses to books.


As a school we can also win a donation of books from Pearson, Penguin and DK Publishers.

We wish all of our year 5 and 6 pupils the best in this competition- Happy reading!!
