13th Oct Summer Reading challenge UPDATE – NOTE:
We have now contacted most of the winners for this competition. Emails should be with all winners by close Friday 15th October. Due to the number of entries that achieved Gold Reading Level in our reading log, we have given out prizes to those children that achieved Gold Level, then the Silver Level and then finally the Bronze Level in each of the relevant categories. This means that as many prizes as possible were given to our kids’ entries. Therefore, some of those that achieved gold will get a different level prize, rather than not win a prize at all.
