At the end of Week 9, we celebrated our first Word Millionaire of the year.
Congratulations to Mariyah from Orchid Class for achieving this magnificent feat – for the second year running.
Mariyah received a certificate and a £25 voucher to spend on even more books!
Last year, in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, our pupils collectively read almost one hundred million words as part of the Accelerated Reader programme. (The precise total was 98,852,076.)
It would be great if we could beat last year’s total and even get past the 100,000,000 WORDS threshold.
