Dear Parent /Guardian,
Your child is taking part in Readathon – a national sponsored reading event – to encourage students to read for pleasure whilst helping children in hospital at the same time.
Click on this link to sponsor a pupil:
Reading for pleasure should be encouraged whenever possible – research shows again and again that young people who regularly read for pleasure are more likely to do well throughout their lives. Readathon helps to establish and reinforce these good habits and enables pupils to discover which books, authors and genres they enjoy the most.
The money raised helps seriously ill children in the UK, and helps Readathon to provide books and storytellers to children in hospital.
Please encourage your child as much as possible by supporting their reading and sponsoring them as well. Just use the link below to sponsor your child and please forward this email on to anyone else you think would be interested.
By taking part in Readathon, as well as encouraging reading and helping children in hospital, will also be earning free books to boost the school’s library so please do support the event generously.
