Warwickshire Schools Library Service

Register Now for our Year 4 Reading Celebration 2024!

Warwickshire Schools Library Service (WSLS) are delighted to offer the Year 4 Reading Celebration (Y4RC) opportunity to ALL schools in 2024 for the 8th consecutive year. We run this initiative in partnership with Warwickshire’s public library service. We will be making some changes to how we run the Final Celebration Events in 2024 in response to feedback from this years celebrations. 

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 your 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 2024. They can read 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 during the week commencing 11th March 2024. Each class team will have the opportunity to share their class creative challenge work at the beginning of this event. Teams will take part in a fun, book related quiz and activities, competing against other schools in the County.

The winning teams will be presented with prizes and a trophy to keep and display at their school. There will be a separate trophy for the creative challenge winning team and the quiz/activity winning team. All pupils attending the Final Celebrations will receive a Star Reader medal and certificate. All year 4 pupils will 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.
