Summer Reading Challenge
Pupils were set a reading challenge for the summer here’s how they got on!
The girls took part in an ‘Olympic Challenge’ for each house to read as much as possible over the summer and send in pictures of themselves reading. Each School House had their own Olympic ring, with the fifth, black ring for staff. St. Therese was the winning team and all 'Team G' celebrated with their 'gold' medal rewards. At the Junior Girls assembly the girls were rewarded for their reading, when RBWM Librarian, Saloni Radia presented them with their certificates for completing this year's Summer Reading Challenge. The 'Big Friendly Read' initiative celebrated the centenary of Roald Dahl who created possibly the best known female book-loving character, Matilda.
Junior Boys challenge was to have their photo taken reading in an extreme or unusual location. Two pupils took it one step further and made a 3D interactive wooden scene of their holiday in California earning merit certificates.
“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.”
― Roald Dahl, Matilda
