A message from Nantwich Library

'This year's summer reading challenge for primary school children is called Record Breakers. As in previous years, the challenge is for each child to read six books over the summer holidays. This year we are launching the challenge on Saturday, 11th July in Nantwich Library and we are including a national record breaking attempt to get the most children to promise to read over the summer!

The reading challenge is always very popular with children and parents; its fun, entertaining and keeps the children reading and feeling enthusiastic about books over the summer weeks. The aim is that children return to school in September with reading levels maintained or improved and with the inspiration and sense of curiosity to continue to read more. The feedback we get from parents and schools is always very positive. We have had many examples of even the most reluctant readers finding books which grab their imagination and so discovering a new love for reading. We have a very wide selection of books from fiction to non-fiction and in many formats all of which the children can read as part of the challenge

Your school will shortly be receiving invitations for each child to take part in the reading challenge. These include a pledge section to help us break a world record! Our Record Breaking attempt on Saturday, 11th July will be an exciting and positive way for the children to start the challenge. All they have to do is fill in the "My Pledge" part of the invitation and bring it along to Nantwich Library between 9.30 — 12.30 on the day. There will be a pledge box to post their form, lots of lovely books and the opportunity to sign up for the reading challenge — this will help them stick to their pledge!'

Let's see if we can get as many children as possible to take part and break Wrenbury's own participation record!

Continuing to explore our Space theme, the children drew around themselves creating an astronaut and set about decorating it. We have turned our handprints into aliens and wrote our names in glitter. The children finished off their mobile of the planets (we may have discovered a few more than in real life!) and hung this in the classroom. It looks super! Last week we made astronaut packed...

As you know, Sarah (Goodwin) has been quietly receiving donations of household 'clearing out' items and reselling them in the hope of raising £1000 to cover the lost fundraising from the school's annual summer fair. Sarah has topped her personal target and has now raised £1,500. WOW! Sarah — it's an incredible amount and we all thank you for your personal...
