Book fair re­sults make good read­ing for school

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PUPILS helped raise money for new books for the class­room by tak­ing part in a book fair.

The fayre was held for Den­ham Green E-ACT Pri­mary Academy pupils and par­ents.

A pro­por­tion of the money raised was do­nated to the academy, to help buy new sup­plies and books for the class­room. In to­tal, £232 was raised.

Another aim of the fair was to en­cour­age read­ing out­side the class­room.

The academy said it has com­mit­ted it­self to im­prov­ing read­ing through var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties and schemes, in­clud­ing a read­ing chal­lenge which takes place ev­ery week, and phon­ics work­shops with par­ents to support home learn­ing.

Head­teacher Sarah English said: “It’s great see­ing the chil­dren get so ex­cited by read­ing and dis­cov­er­ing new books.

“The money we raised is fan­tas­tic and shows that there is a de­sire for read­ing in our pupils, which we hope will only con­tinue to grow.”
