Congratulations to our Year 7 Extreme Reading Challenge winners who were presented with their prizes and certificates in assembly on Monday 26 September! The Challenge, which was set in the Year 6 transition week before the summer holidays, asked students to have their photographs taken whilst reading a book in an extreme location, accompanied by a book review of their chosen book. We had some beautifully presented, creative and very funny entries, so well done to everybody who took part!

Our overall winner was Toby Catchpole who was reading ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ by Roald Dahl on the flight deck of a Boeing 737-800.

Our runner-ups were:

Georgei Wilson reading David Walliam’s ‘The World’s Worst Children’ on a ride at Pleasure Beach, Great Yarmouth.

Billy Loughman reading ‘Old School’ by Jeff Kinney, buried up to his neck in sand at Lowestoft beach.

Millie Turner reading Eve Garnett’s ‘The Family from One End Street’ on a zip wire at Go Ape.

Kayleigh Clarke reading Jeff Kinney’s ‘Dog Days’, sitting in the middle of the road on Westminster Bridge, in front of Big Ben.

And finally, Amelie Rough reading ‘Bad Magic’ by Pseudonymous Bosch whilst sitting at the top of Mount Snowdon.
