Some of the students from year 4 have attended the annual 'Reading Gladiators' challenge day at Brightside School, Billericay. Please see the following article in the Maldon and Burnham Standard:
The Gladiators said 'It is amazing, I would recommend it to all the new Gladiators that might join next year'. 'You get to do fun activities and you can win like we won the art challenge, we came 1st'.
Madison and Sophie said 'Reading Gladiators is about reading and understanding books, we get a new book every month with a variety of pictures, science books and lots more. We've read 7 books and all of them are very good'.
Aiden, Charlie and Fergus said 'on the 20th of June we went on the Gladiator trip which had an Art challenge, we had to make a large bookmark and we had to base it on one of the Gladiator books throughout the year. We choose the many worlds of Albie Bright. We came in first place with our design'.
Poppy and Jen said 'Our drama task was to add an extra scene to a book, we choose 'The Many Worlds of Albie Bright', we added extra characters, such as famous Albie, Football Albie and Piggy McWiggy. We gave an amazing show'.
