Bridgeway School: Brilliant bookworms
The Bridgeway Reading Champions from Bridgeway School recently held their first meeting of the academic year. The team of pupils promote the school’s Read to Lead Movement, which aims to create opportunities to develop a love for reading and literature, and also develop key skills in communication and leadership.
Bursting with ideas for activities related to reading, the team made suggestions such as interactive book club discussions, creating trivia around popular literature, as well as supporting younger readers by introducing reading mentors.
The Reading Champions have been selected by their year group to represent them. They will meet bi-weekly to discuss new and creative ways to improve the reading culture of the school.
For an upcoming campaign, the group are working with Mr Sutton to create a ‘Love for Books’ video, where they talk about their favourite reads and favourite authors. They are also working on a storybook, where they plan to compile a collection of stories written by pupils, inspired by their favourite reads. If that wasn’t enough, they are also hoping to raise the interest of diverse reading by sourcing more and a wider variety of books for the school library.
They certainly are a busy bunch! Well done everyone.
