At the time it seemed a safe dare, last year reading was something we had to work on. Each week, the number of home reads were recorded, a total of 3626 reads this year. We have improved our reading frequency each term.
So from 20th to 24th June, we made a final effort to see how many five times a readers we could achieve. Remarkably, even children her were off school participated. For the first time ever, our class achieved 100% 5x-a-week readers...and the fate of Mr. Powell's hair was sealed!
