100 Million Minutes Reading Challenge 2018

100 Million Minutes Reading Challenge 2018 Results!!

We read a total of 39,743 minutes in March 2018.  That is equal to an average of around 537 minutes each (based on 74 children who submitted minutes).

Well done Woodham Walter.  We came 226th out of 679 school who took part.

All the schools combined read a staggering 100, 019, 560 minutes.  So we smashed the 100million target.  You helped do that!

Well done Rosh Pinah Primary School who won the challenge.

We are still waiting to have the 100 Million Minutes results verified by Achievement for All.

I can say that I submitted a grand total of 39,743 minutes,  which is staggering!  This is an average of 560 minutes per pupil taking part. WELL DONE to everyone who participated.

We are very excited to announce that we have just signed up for the:

100 Million Minutes Reading Challenge 2018 – a national reading initiative from education charity Achievement for All.

Together with schools, early years settings and community groups up and down the country, children and young people will try to read for a collective 100 million minutes.

Why? Up to two in five children in disadvantaged communities across the UK have difficulties with literacy.  We know that introducing all children and young people to the habit of reading in everyday life can improve communication skills and brighten future prospects.

The challenge will kick off on World Book Day (Thursday 1st March2018) and run until Thursday 29th March. Each week we'll be adding our reading minutes to our overall score, and doing our best to come out on top.

All the children will receive bookmarks and log how much they read.  When it is full they give it to Mrs Lee-Ranson and she will give them a new.  The initiative closes on 29th March.  There is also a national league table! So come on let’s get our children reading !!
