In Term 5, Thames View Primary children took part in a sponsored read with the support of Usborne Publishing.
Children collected sponsor monies and logged how many books and how many minutes they read over the course of a week. Two years ago we successfully raised around £2,700, and our target this year was around £3,000.
Well….the support of all our children and their families has surpassed our target. We raised, along with the commission from Usborne, around £4,400!! Wow, wow and another wow!
Through these monies raised, we have been able to buy a HUGE range of books for all year groups, class sets of dictionaries, atlases, thesauruses and a variety of other resources.
Have a look at a sample of the books we have had delivered!
We would not have been able to do this without the support of Helen Daniels, our Usborne contact and more importantly your help, support and commitment to the reading of all the children.
