Read All About It
All of the pupils at Chantry Middle School in Morpeth are taking part in a sponsored read. The event is organised by Angela Wilson at Usborne books, and all money raised will go towards buying books for school. The school is hoping to raise £600 and if they do they will receive £960 worth of books from Usborne. Several businesses have already assisted with a book pledge.
There is a real buzz about reading in the school, and the children are very keen to take part. It doesn’t just have to be story books - they can read anything from novels, poetry, non-fiction, comic books, recipes, text books - the list is endless.
The event is taking place from 18th to 24th November.
