Ready, Steady, Read - Half Term Reading Challenge!

23rd October 2020

To celebrate and encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and school, we will be running a sponsored read between 26th and 31st October 2020.

The project is being organised in conjunction with our Usborne Organiser, Vikki MacDonald and all the money raised will go towards brand new books for our school. CHECK OUT THE VIDEO BELOW!

In addition to the sponsorship money, Usborne also will donate up to 60% of the total raised in EXTRA FREE BOOKS to Lemington Riverside Primary School. So for every £600 raised, we will get an extra £360 in FREE Usborne books!

Please help us to enhance our reading resources for pupils by encouraging your child to spend a small amount of time each day either reading to themselves, to others, or being read to. They can read anything with words (for example comics, recipes, magazines) for as long or as little as they like.

Should you wish to support our sponsored read, please find enclosed a sponsorship form for your child (see attachment at the bottom of the page). A reading log, to record the minutes they have spent reading, will be given to them in class.

After the sponsored read, please send all the sponsorship money via the PayPal link below, by 9th November 2020.


Please support our sponsored read so that your child has more books to read, share and enjoy.
