Reading Around the World Challenge

Friday, 8 November 2019

Our first award winners

On Friday 8th November we presented the first of our Reading Around the World medals to children who have successfully reaching the first or second destination on their journey!

Everyone has a special Reading Passport with six journeys to complete!

For every journey there are a number of ‘jumps’ to get to a destination. Children colour each ‘jump’ or spot on their passport for every 10 minutes of reading they complete at home!

When children reach a new destination Year 6 will meet with each child to discuss the book they have been reading and recommend if they will receive a special badge with the flag of the destination on it in assembly!

When children have been around the world they will be presented with a special certificate and a £5 gift voucher!

Everyone gets the chance to go once around the world and complete the challenge once a year… so they have plenty of time to complete the challenge!

We are very proud of all of our Year 6 children, they have been a pleasure to have at St Joseph’s and even though they are leaving the building we reminded them that they will always part of the St Joseph’s family.

Thank you Year 6 and all the very best for the future.
