Sparrows soar high in book challenge
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.
