ARK Bentworth Big Read
ARK Bentworth big read
There’s a buzz about books at ARK Bentworth Primary Academy this summer holiday. The school has been sponsored by Travelex to provide every child with a reading book of their choice to take home, read and keep! The books were chosen from recommended lists of children’s top titles provided by Westminster Library Services and are designed to challenge and excite the children’s love of reading. All children in the school are setting themselves ambitious targets to see how many books they can read over the holidays. The school will be holding a book swap morning on the 1st August where children are invited to come in and trade their books for something new to read. Mrs Grierson, the Associate Headteacher says ‘We are passionate about children reading widely and for pleasure at ARK Bentworth and it’s wonderful to see the enthusiasm children have for the reading challenge. Even the teachers are getting involved to see how many books they can read! Not all children have regular access to a library over the holidays so we want to increase the chances of children accessing and enjoying reading whilst away from school’.
