Year 4 Reading Celebration 2020: sign-up form

Following another successful Year 4 Reading Celebration in 2019, we are delighted to offer this again in 2020 in partnership with Warwickshire’s public library service (#Y4RC20).

This is 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 2020. There will be a class challenge in response to their reading and the school will select a team of four pupils to attend the Final Celebration Event that will take place in March 2020 at a Warwickshire Library in your area (please see the dates below). Your school will need to be able to send a team to the relevant area Final Celebration Event as outlined below. The teams will bring with them the class challenge work that the whole class has completed, and this will be part of the competition at the final event. Teams will take part in activities, such as book-related quizzes in a fun atmosphere and compete against other schools in the County. The winning team will be given a trophy to keep and display at school and each team member will receive a Star Reader medal and goody bag.  All participating Year 4 pupils will also receive a certificate.

The Final Celebration Event dates and times for March 2020 are as follows:
Atherstone Library: Monday 16th March 10am-11.30am

If you would like more pupils in Year 4 to be able to take part, additional Reading Logs can be purchased at £1 per pupil. Please add this to your order as indicated.
