An amazing story from Ysgol Esgob Morgan in St Asaph, North Wales. All of the pupils in the school (up to year 6) took part in the Summer Reading Challenge and completed it.
The school was supported by author Helena Pielichaty, their Patron of Reading, who has just awarded them with a special cup for their achievement. Read Helena's blog to find out all about it, and how she's also helped us judge the overall winner of our Story Lab Finish the Story competition.
Head Teacher Tim Redgrave says, "We are delighted that all of our children in the school have completed the Summer Reading Challenge. It is great to have so many children reading for pleasure, inspired by our wonderful Patron of Reading, Helena Pielichaty."
Bethan Hughes from Denbighshire Library Service says, "We are delighted by the school's success. It's the result of a very strong bond between the school and the local library, and the reading for pleasure culture which has been developed. The school always get involved with library activities such as author visits and Chatterbooks.
I'd also like to pay tribute to St Asaph VP Infants - the Summer Reading Challenge is a key Year 2/3 transition activity for them. Year 2 visited as a class to sign up and every child completed the challenge. All this is only possible because of the fabulous staff in St Asaph Library and the community librarian Kara Knott and their commitment and support for the children and teachers."
If you've got a story to tell about how your school and library are working together on the Summer Reading Challenge, we'd love to hear about it. Get in touch to tell us more.
