Book fair results make good reading for school
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.”
