Read for my School

On the 19th January 2015, an exciting project was kick started by Mrs Stock in the KS2 Monday assembly. The project involves reading lots and lots of books for the opportunity to win prizes, not only for the school, but also for the individual children.


Read for my School is a national campaign aimed at Years 3 to 6. At Becontree, we recognise the importance of reading and look for many opportunities to celebrate it so we, of course, decided this was a perfect opportunity. Children will be able to read many exciting fiction and non-fiction books via the internet. Each student has been given their own individual log in to use -not only in school but at home too. Their task is to read as many books as they can from now until March when the project ends (just in time for World Book Day)!


To keep the spirit of competition alive at Becontree, we have decided to run our own in-school competition between girls and boys. A league table will be on display and kept up-to-date throughout the rest of the project. On World Book Day, a special prize will be won by the most prolific readers in each year group too! So, you know what to do... KEEP READING!
