The children in 3/4R are taking part in the national ‘READ FOR MY SCHOOL’ competition. During this time we are encouraging the children to read as many books as they can, in and outside of school. The books can either be printed copies or E-books read online. Further details about 'READ FOR MY SCHOOL' and a range of free E-books can be found on:

The Duke of Kent
