'Ready Steady Read' sponsored reading challenge
We are excited to announce that we will be participating in a sponsored read event next week called ‘Ready Steady Read.’ It is an Usborne Book’s sponsored reading challenge where we can raise money to buy much needed books for our school. We are also hoping to promote a love and enthusiasm for reading amongst the children at SMFR.
The event will run from Monday 8th November to Friday 12th November. Children will bring a sponsorship form home and the aim is to collect sponsorship money for the number of minutes they spend reading every evening. The class who raises the most money will win a tin of sweets to share and an extra 15-minute play time!
Sponsorship money will be collected in on the following week (unfortunately we are only able to accept cash). The final day for collecting monies will be Friday 19th November.
There will also be a book stall at 3.15pm after school on Wednesday 10th November, Thursday 11th November and Friday 12th November if you wish to purchase any books.
We really hope that you can join us in getting the children excited about reading and helping to not only get brand new books on our shelves but also to enhance the children’s learning. If we can raise £600 with your sponsorships, Usborne will give us an extra 60% in FREE books! That will be £960 of new books for our children in school! Please do help your child/ren to ask parents, grandparents, neighbours, friends and other family members to support this great cause.
The children will bring a paper sponsorship form home but if you need to print off another please click the link below.
