Warwickshire Schools Library Service

Register Now for our Year 4 Reading Celebration 2023!

Warwickshire Schools Library Service (WSLS) are delighted to offer the Year 4 Reading Celebration opportunity to ALL schools in 2023, in partnership with Warwickshire’s public library service (#Y4RC23)

This is really popular with schools and a lovely way to celebrate reading and support Government objectives and your own work encouraging reading for pleasure in school. We hope to inspire young pupils to enjoy reading and to use their school and local libraries.

Participating pupils will be asked to borrow and read any four books from their local library and record their thoughts in a specially designed Reading Log, which will be sent to schools in January 2023. These could be physical books or e-books. Your whole Y4 class/year can take part and there will be a whole class creative challenge in response to their reading.

Your school will select a team of four pupils to attend a Final Celebration Event that will take place in March 2023, week commencing 13th March. The class team will have the opportunity share the class creative challenge work at the beginning of this event. Teams will take part in a fun book-related quiz and compete against other schools in the County. The winning team will be presented with a trophy to keep and display at school and each winning team member will receive a Star Reader medal and goody bag. All participating Year 4 pupils will also receive a certificate. 

The COST to take part is £40 for WSLS subscribing schools and £50 for non-subscribing schools. This price includes 30 Reading Logs, a Toolkit and an invitation for your school team of four pupils to attend the Final Celebration Event. You can purchase additional Reading Logs at a cost of £1 per pupil if required.
