In a case of ready steady read, seven bookworms won themselves a reward for being the team who devoured the most books during the course of last term.

The seven pupils along with other children at Broadford Primary School, Faringdon Avenue, Harold Hill, took part in a reading challenge.

Pupils earned one point for reading and three for reviewing books with the winners reaching a total of 77 and were rewarded with a trip to the Lee Valley VeloPark.

Teni Adu, nine, said: “I love reading, I really like to read playscripts.

“Reading helps you to become a better learner and it feels great to win the challenge and go on a fun day out.”

Devised and implemented by the school’s librarian the “premier reading league” is run on a termly basis.

Interim headteacher Lois Nicholls added: “If you can read you are able to access the whole curriculum and it is our mission to ensure that every child becomes a fluent and accurate reader by the time they are six-years-old.

“Reward schemes like this one ensures that our pupils are motivated and inspired to read and they are accessing really complex texts such as Harry Potter by J.K Rowling.”
