Year 8 Word Millionaire Celebrations

Twenty five of our most avid Year 8 readers celebrated reaching Word Millionaire status. Of these, Patrick and Saoirse reached their 5 million word goal, and Alex his 10 million. Well done Alex, Patrick and Saoirse!

The morning began with a celebration of independent reading with the reception class at Woodcote Primary School. It was difficult to tell who enjoyed it more! The library was buzzing with reception children reading to the Year 8s and the Year 8s sharing their favourite childhood books.

Pete’s entertaining tales about his writing engaged all the students and staff, resulting with requests for Pete to consider setting his next novel at Langtree School!
