As a school we have completed our first week of our reading challenge. We have joined many schools up and down the country in the ‘100 million minutes reading challenge’. In our first week as a school we have managed to read 57,824 minutes. This is fantastic! After the first day, St Vincent’s were ranked 500 out of 526 schools. After our first week, we have managed to move up to position 230 out of 526 schools!!! Remember to record the number of minutes you have read each night in your reading record. The more you read the better chance we have of winning the competition……£5000 to spend on books for our school. Well done boys and girls, keep going!
