Teacher of English, Ms Parker, tells us about running Readathon remotely this year: “It’s our belief that reading for pleasure plays a really important role in helping our young people to recover from the unquantified impact of Covid-19 on their education, social development, mental health and well-being. We believe that Readathon can help school communities come together, united in a common purpose, supporting children in hospital, which at the same time aids their own students’ recovery. We are combining Readathon and World Book Day this year. From 1st-8th March, KS3 students will be sponsored to read as many books as they can. World Book Day (4th March) will be celebrated with a whole school quiz. Many more activities and challenges have been planned, putting “reading” at the centre of this week. Announcements for all events will be on Show My Homework.”
