Spar­rows soar high in book chal­lenge

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

Proud pupils have proved they are cool cus­tomers by be­ing named best book­worms in the dis­trict.

Spar­rows class from Fin­berry Pri­mary School achieved the most im­pres­sive num­ber of min­utes spent read­ing at home for a sum­mer chal­lenge.

The com­pe­ti­tion was or­gan­ised by the KM Char­ity Team.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing schools rose to the chal­lenge on Wed­nes­day, June 7, and classes con­ducted hands-up sur­veys to count the num­ber of pupils meet­ing or ex­ceed­ing their read­ing tar­gets.

Class rep­re­sen­ta­tives Lawk Ab­dulka­reen and Lu­cia Par­lar Tor­rado, both six, joined win­ners from across the county for a cel­e­bra­tion photo call at Sil­ver Blades Ice Rink, Gilling­ham. They col­lected a certificate for their school and free skat­ing tick­ets on be­half of their fel­low pupils.

They were con­grat­u­lated by Buster Bug and sup­port­ers Emily Gee­son of Coun- trystyle, Laura Bar­rett of Sil­ver Blades, and Sarah Sav­age of Med­way Coun­cil. Other key part­ners of Buster’s Book Club in­clude Kent County Coun­cil, Kent Li­braries, Three R’s Teacher Re­cruit­ment, Kent Re­liance, Spec­savers, and Bel UK.

Schools want­ing to join Buster’s Book Club or re­quest the free trial should con­tact Charli Elvy at celvy@thek­m­group. or on 0844 264 0291.
