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.

After some silly games in the garden and a picnic lunch, the “Millionaires” had the opportunity to question the popular children’s author Peter Murray (check out more about Pete here). 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!
