I am writing to let you know that our school will be taking part in a national reading competition called Read for My School, which is open to all children in years 3 – 8 in England from February to April 2016.
The competition website www.readformyschool.co.uk is hosting a free online library of over 100 books by top children’s authors. If they participate then your child will be able to read those books online wherever they have internet access. The website is fully compatible with most major tablets. Children can of course also choose to read books in print or that are not part of the online library – the goal is simply to read as much as possible this term.
There are prizes and awards on offer for the schools where pupils read the most, and individual awards are also available for children who can be nominated as Reading Legends. Any encouragement that you can give to your child that supports them as they try to read a little more this term would be invaluable, whatever form it may take. If they do participate in Read for My School fully then your child will reap benefits for themselves as well as for our school.
Your child will need to create an account in order to take part in the competition by following these easy steps:
- Go to www.readformyschool.co.uk
- Select “Pupil Login”
- Complete your child’s details including setting up a username and password and click Login
Our Reading Group Code is: 114471
I hope your child will enjoy taking part in this competition. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mrs S Williamson
