To promote reading in our school we have decided to award pupils who borrow and read books from our class libraries. Class libraries are well equipped with fiction and non-fiction books, both Maltese and English. A good number of books have been sponsored by parents during parents’ day.
Since the beginning of the year we have been prompting pupils to borrow books and log them on the school’s blue reading sheet. Learners who have read a substantial amount of books will be awarded certificates as follows:
Bronze certificate for reading 45 books or more
Silver certificate for reading 90 books or more
Gold certificate for reading 135 books or more
Platinum certificate for reading 180 books or more
Outstanding certificate for reading 225 books or more. Reading Record cards (Blue Sheets) are collected during each term.
Photos of our reading stars are displayed on our “Wall of Fame” in the school foyer.
Reading Super Stars Awards
At the end of the year the pupil who reads most books from each year group will be awarded the Reading Super Star trophy. This initiative was inspired by the famous Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars. In fact our Reading Super Star trophy is very similar to the Academy Awards statuette.
