Will You Take Reading to the Extreme?

Dear Parents and Carers,

Where is the most extreme place your child has ever read a book? Whether it is up a tree, on top of a mountain or standing on their head, we want your photos! As part of the build up to World Book Day on March 5th we are inviting you all (including staff and parents) to take reading to the extreme! This half term, we are challenging you to have a picture taken of you reading in an unusual place – the more bizarre the better!

Members of The Pupil Council and Parent Teacher Association will face the difficult task of choosing one person from each Key Stage to be crowned ‘Hillbrook’s  Extreme Reading Champion’ and awarded a £10 book voucher.

If you’re up for this challenge please either give your photo to the school office (with your child’s name and class on the back) or email photos to the school admin@hillbrook.wandsworth.sch.uk writing ‘Extreme Reading’ and your child’s name and class in the subject line. The closing date for all entries is Wednesday 4th March. Winners will be announced on 6th March. A display will also be made and photos shared on the school website.

Whilst of course we want you to have fun undertaking this challenge please also ensure you keep yourself safe  (I wouldn’t recommend reading in the jaws of a crocodile!) We can’t wait to see who in school has such a passion for reading that they have to do it anywhere and everywhere!

As part of our celebration of reading, on March 5th we shall be asking children and staff to come to school dressed as their favourite story character so now is the perfect time to start creating your costume.

We hope you have a fun filled holiday. We’ll be taking reading to the extreme, will you?
