At Pittville School we believe that reading is the key to achieving and succeeding. To encourage pupils to enjoy reading, we run the Accelerated Reading Scheme. This requires students to take quizzes, based on the books that they have read, and thus achieve rewards. The computer remembers how many words each child has read and we reward them when they reach important milestones.
Louahanna-Rane Hopkins (8As2) is our Champion 0f Champions.
She has just beaten all records to have read over 4 million words, since September 2017 ( after just 3 terms). The highest level we had previously achieved is nearly 3 million (and that was after 6 terms).
Many congratulations go to Louahanna – she really enjoys her reading.
Her next goal is to have read over 5 million words…watch this space!
