The Wall Of Fame

Posted by willkay on September 10, 2012


And so it begins. Reading is very important. True, you can pick up some information from a teacher, or a parent, or that person stood at the corner of the street. But, in order to get information from other resources, you need to read. The information might be in a book, an encyclopaedia, on the internet, or written on a billboard – but, to get the information you must be able to read. And you need to be able to understand what you read, and you need to read quickly. Every night, I expect each student to read for a minimum of 20 minutes. This means that they should be reading for 140 minutes a week, minimum. Their target should be 140 pages a week, minimum. However, some students read for more than 20 minutes a day, and I like to celebrate their achievement. So, I set up The 200+ Club. Anyone who reads more than 200 pages in a week, gets to be in The 200+ Club.

The absolute, fantastic news is that some students read more than 300 pages a week. These students make: The Wall Of Fame. Welcome to the first The Wall Of Fame for the year 2012-2013:

THE WALL OF FAME

Congratulations!
