Diamond and Sapphire class will be taking part in the 100 Million Minutes Reading Challenge – a national reading initiative from the education charity Achievement for All. The challenge will kick off on World Book Day (Thursday 1st March 2018) and run until Thursday 29th March. The children in both classes will be taking on the challenge of reading for as many minutes as they can throughout the month. At the end of every week, we will count up the combined number of minutes to see if we can work with other children across the country to read 100 million minutes of reading! Reading of any sort can be counted which means that children can read books, magazines or even ebooks as part of the challenge. You can support your child be ensuring that you have recorded how much they have read a day, take them for a trip to the library and signed their bookmark. Whilst they are reading, you could also ask them some questions about the book and discuss any new words that they come across.
