I had a great day today at Ghyllgrove Junior school in Basildon today. Their football writers helped me write the online chapter for today too.
We’ve had a great email from Huish Episcopi school too:
“We are using the Premier League Reading Stars promotion to encourage our Year 7 and 8 students to read more. Three teams of our Year 7 footballers are helping with this; one 'team' has taken responsibility for putting the posters in all Year 7 and 8 tutor rooms and once a week we give them the stickers to put on the relevant posters (we include the tutor group and initials of the student who has read a book on each sticker).
“A second 'team' is responsible for completing the results chart in the library and promoting the newspapers.
The third 'team' is doing a collage-style display and are putting together a quiz to be held one lunchtime in the library. We have made a display of all our football books - fiction and non fiction.”
