As part of our drive to boost literacy across the whole school, I’m very pleased to announce some positive changes that will influence both your child and their learning experiences at Belper School.
Whole School Reading Journey Scheme
Years 7-11 will have an opportunity to gain reading success through our brand new Reading Journey Scheme.
For each year group, there will be 12 books of varying content that students need to aim to read by the end of the year.
There are options to complete 3, 4, 8 or 12 books and can even ‘create their own’ reading journey. Students will be rewarded for their dedication to reading and the incentives get better with the more books that they read:
- 3 books = 10 merits
- 4 books = 20 merits
- 8 books = Book shop visit and chippy lunch
- 12 books = Reading Champion Awards breakfast
- 24 books = Name in the draw for Theme Park tickets or £40 Amazon voucher
KS3 Students will receive their Reading Journey Scheme Booklets in their first English or library lesson of the year and will be kept with their Knowledge Organisers. The booklets for KS4 will be available on request from tutors.
