Accelerated Reading Champions!
All RLS Year 7 are now on the Accelerated Reading Programme and many of our students were rewarded for their efforts so far in our first ARP Prize Assembly last Friday (30th November). The atmosphere in the main hall was brilliant, so enthusiastic with students clapping and cheering their successes…
Mr Rowe’s class (7R3) achieved the most words read, close to four million, beating Ms Barratt’s class (7R2) into very creditable second place. Who will be in first place next time?
Ten students were awarded book tokens by Mrs Bone (the Head of English) for having read the most words to date: Jools Clarke, Lauren Courage, Joshua Pascoe, Ella Thomas, Amy Leigh, Michael Stevens, Joshua Roberts, Emily Smith, Kayleigh Yates and Jessica Hudson. Well done to you all – keep up the fabulous effort!
Our First Millionaires!
Hector Faux (1,241,876) and Michael Luscombe (1,007,300) are our first students to read over a million words individually and also received book tokens for their amazing reading stamina. A brilliant performance boys.
Kindle Prize Draw
Tension mounted in the main hall as the prize draw was made by Mrs Hooper for the Kindle ereader. The lucky name pulled from the hat was Hannah Dobson, who was astounded by her good fortune and was still looking amazed at the end of the assembly. Her win was cheered all round by her peers.
It Could Be You…
The next Kindle prize draw – of names of students who have successfully completed quizzes - takes place soon after the Christmas holidays. So… get your holiday reading from the library (you can take out three books but speak to Mr Rose if you want to take more) and then get quizzing. Every completed quiz equals your name in the hat. You’ve got to be in it to win it! Good luck for next time.
