We are running a Read for Good Sponsored Read and we’d love your child to join in.
Pupils can choose whatever they want to read – from comics to classics and audio books to blogs – they are not being assessed, it’s all about reading for fun.
And, they are motivated to read because the money they raise in sponsorship helps to provide a regular supply of brand new books and a resident storyteller to every major children’s hospital in the UK.
All you have to do is:
- Take a look at what they plan to read, or help them complete their list of books to read. Remember they can read whatever they want: books, e-books, poetry, comics – anything goes! Sharing books is fine too (in fact recommended!) as well as listening to audio books.
- Help your child find sponsors among family and friends. The easiest way to sponsor a child is at http://readforgood.org/sponsor-a-pupil-taking-part-in-readathon (which family and friends can use too) or return the sponsor card with a cheque(s) or cash sent to school.
Please support your child’s sponsored read as much as you can. They’ll be helping kids in hospitals get books, as well as helping themselves. And our school receives free books worth 20% of our grand sponsorship total – so there really is something in it for everyone.
For more information, check out your child’s sponsorship card and visit readforgood.org
The deadline for the sponsorship money is Friday 25th May
Thank you for your support.
