The New Beacon’s Big Read has come to an end. The boys have achieved some fantastic reading challenges over the past month. Here are just some of the goals we have heard about:

To read 4000 pages
Reading as many books from the Roald Dahl collection
To read 5 books independently each day
Reading the entire collection of Mr Men books
Nursery are seeing how many books they can read altogether!
Reading the entire “Cat in the Hat” book
To read 10 of the Read Write Ink books
Reading as many whole books as possible to a parent
To read more than 2000 pages.

Here is a small selection of the boys with their noses in a book

As of Friday morning, we had raised £2,306. ​ We will keep the donations page open until Friday 26 March for any last minute donations as boys complete their challenges. Please follow the link to donate:
