Year 4 Reading Celebration 2018!
Following the success of last year's pilot Y4RC17, we are delighted to invite you to take part in our Warwickshire Year 4 Reading Celebration 2018! (Y4RC18)
We love reading for pleasure at Warwickshire SLS and this initiative is designed to encourage and inspire young pupils to enjoy reading and to use their school and local libraries, in line with Government and Ofsted recommendations.
What does it involve? Participating pupils will be asked to borrow and read any four books from their local library and record their thoughts in a specially designed Reading Log. These Reading Logs will be sent to participating schools in January 2018. There will be a class challenge in response to their reading and the school will select a team of four pupils to attend the Final Celebration event that will take place at the end of March 2018 at a Warwickshire Library in your area. The teams will bring with them the group work that the whole class has completed, and this will be part of the competition at the final event, where teams from different schools in the County will compete for an area trophy. There will be team activities such as book-related quizzes in a fun atmosphere. The winning team will be given a trophy to display at school and each winning team member will receive a Star Reader medal and goody bag. All Year 4 pupils participating in the reading in each school will also receive a certificate.
Who can take part? This initiative is open to all Warwickshire schools, including those that do not currently subscribe to Warwickshire SLS.
Cost: The cost for your school to participate is just £30 for subscribing schools and £40 for non-subscribing schools and for this you will receive a toolkit, up to 30 reading logs and an invitation to the final celebration event for your team of 4 pupils, where there will be the opportunity to win a school trophy and individual medals.
