Our Read-A-Thon 2015, is a fundraiser that celebrates books and reading. We hope that everyone will have fun joining in this event and that children will gain (or further develop) a love of reading and books.
The Read-A-Thon begins on World Book Day (Thursday 5th March) and lasts for two weeks. Throughout this time we warmly invite you to join us by encouraging your children to read as much as possible.
The main event is a sponsored read. Every second counts - prizes will be given for the 4 pupils who have read the most minutes and for the class who have cumulatively read the most minutes. Read at home, in the car, in the bath, to a pet or a sibling....just make sure you record it on a Tally Form (available on our website) each day . If your child is in Reception or Year 1, parent-read minutes can also be counted.
Please sign-up to CharityChoice and register as a fundraiser for this event if you would like to collect online donations, but remember you will still need to keep a Tally Form of the minutes you/your child spends reading.
We have lots of other fun events and competitions lined up throughout the Read-A-Thon, take a look at our website or ask one of our committee members for more details.
