Pupils Complete the Reading Quest!

Stamford Junior School Pupils With Reading Challenge Medals and CertificatesDuring the summer, Year 4 pupil Andrew Martin and Year 3 pupil Rosie Harvey took part in the National Summer Reading Challenge at Stamford Library. The pupils completed ‘the Quest’ by visiting the library on a weekly basis and each reading six books. Each week, prizes - such as magnets, magic pens and stickers - were given out to praise the children’s achievements. For successfully completing the challenge, Andrew and Rosie each received a certificate and medal.

The Reading Challenge takes place in libraries annually and is an excellent way to keep young children reading during the school holiday.

Andrew said, “I love reading and I am really pleased with all the books that I read. My favourites were the adventure stories.”
