Star Reader

All year 7 and 8 students participate in the Accelerated reader programme. This involves them reading a book of their choice and quizzing it on the computer. This gives them a score and also tells them how many words they have read. Amazingly we have a student in year 7 who has achieved a million words read this early in the school term.

Willow has read over 1, 200, 000 words since September. To celebrate this achievement Willow has been awarded an Amazon Kindle Fire and certificate.

The books she has read are; Nightmares, Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets, Deathly Hallows, Order of the Phoenix, Cursed Child; Girl Online the series of 3 books; The Isle of the Lost, Terminal, Exposure, Code, Seizure, Virals, 13 Chairs and Private Peaceful.

Congratulations Willow you deserve the reward for your dedication and hard work in reading outside of school.
