To our year 7 Reading champions:
Here at Wellington Academy, we know how important it is to keep making progress with reading. We want to ensure we are doing everything we can to support your learning and continue the hard work that you have been putting in to improve your reading levels since September.
The English department have launched a new way to encourage your passion for reading. You will see a few familiar faces reading the first chapters of popular children’s books. This book will then be available for you to read either through a PDF or with a link to the ebook that will be free to download. All the books are on Accelerated Reader too- which means you will be able to quiz on the books you have read.
Each day, a new video will be uploaded to Teams for you to enjoy. If you like the sound of the book, download it and carry on reading. Easy!
The videos will stay on the Year 7 English Teams page and the school YouTube channel for you to go back and revisit when you are looking for a new book to choose. Of course, if you have any requests we would be more than happy to do this too! Happy reading.
Would you like to record yourself reading a chapter of your favourite book? Send it in to your English Teacher if you're happy for it to go online...
