Needed: Transport for a Greenhouse Frame. We have been donated a greenhouse frame and are looking for someone who can transport it for us - only 1/4 or a mile from Crest Farm in to but too big to carry! Do you have a van or trailer and 30 minutes of time?

Reading challenge set for book worms

Reading challenge set for book worms

Posted: 27th November 2019

Schoolchildren are being taken on trips to the local library as part of a push on literacy.

Year 7 and 8 students at Forest Hall School are taking part in the Book Worm Challenge.

Every half-term, students are committing to reading at least four books as part of a push on literacy.

To encourage a love of reading, they will be taken to the local library to explore the books available to them. English teachers are also working with students during form time to help them to discover the genre of books to best capture their attention.

Kayleigh Trainor, assistant head, said: “At the end of every term, book worm awards will be given out to recognise the efforts made by students in literacy.

“With the Government reforms to education, students have to have a high level of literacy to be successful in their exams. We know high level literacy opens many doors and so our young people need the skill for their future lives.

“We are also keen to promote libraries as they recently came under threat of closure.

“Students are really enthusiastic about the initiative. They are going to their English teachers looking for support in choosing their books. As they get older, their interests change, so it is important to pick the right books for their reading level. We do not want them to just pick up any old book, we want them to find the books that bring them joy.”

Leanne Black, head of English, said: “Reading is vital to students’ further study and future careers. Regular reading can make a significant difference to their grades and confidence in a range of subjects.

“However, by encouraging our students to read, we also want them to appreciate the value of a good book as it allows them to escape into different scenarios or even to better understand the world around them. We hope they will learn to love reading and continue this throughout their lives.”
