Mr Dearden, the Learning Resource Centre Coordinator, has registered Moor Park with the Booktrust scheme “Book Buzz”. This means that during the first term of the new school year, every Year 7 pupil will receive a free book of their choice to keep. This is a great way to encourage new pupils to develop the habit of reading for pleasure.
Summer Reading Challenge
This year’s annual Summer Reading Challenge, run by The Reading Agency at public libraries throughout the country, was called “Story Lab”. The challenge was to read six books over the summer holidays, collecting prizes along the way.
Premier League Reading stars
As the new football season picks up momentum in September, Mr Dearden will be running the Premier League Reading Stars in the Learning Resource Centre. This is a football themed reading programme with lots of football prizes to be won.
