Read for My School 2016
Registration for Read for My School has now finished for 2016. Check back in June for details regarding the national winners' event.
Read for My School challenges children in Years 3-8 attending primary and secondary schools in England to read as many books as they can across the spring term.
Pupils who take part in this year's free competition can:
- Read over 100 free books
- Can become Reading Legends
- Win big prizes for themselves and their school
- Get recommended reads and challenges
Teachers can set-up their pupils with their own accounts. This will give pupils access to the online library, exclusive competitions and a record of their progress.
About Read for My School
The competition aims to challenge children to read as much as they can, explore new and different types of books and get talking about the books they've read. Read for My School is for all children, whether they are confident readers or if they're still searching for a story they love. There is a book for every child, and not only can this competition help them find it, but there are also lots of prizes to be won too.
The competition element of Read for My School is split into two areas:
- Prizes for schools
- Prizes for students
Prizes for schools
There are three levels to aim for:
- Bronze (average of 3 books read per pupil)
- Silver (average of 6 books read per pupil)
- Gold (average of 9 books read per pupil)
Certificates are available for teachers to reward their pupils when they reach Bronze, Silver or Gold.
Schools that reach the Gold level will be entered into our prize draw to win Pearson Education vouchers worth £500-£1000 and receive a VIP invite to our awards ceremony in London!
Prizes for students
Teachers can nominate their pupils to become national Reading Legends, giving them the chance to win a tower of books.
Pupils can be nominated under the following categories:
- Pioneers: pupils who have been encouraging others to read.
- Voyagers: pupils who were less interested in reading but have made a real effort to read more.
- Conquerors: pupils who have always enjoyed reading but achieved above and beyond what was expected during the competition.
- Explorers: pupils who have made an effort to choose their own books, exploring new genres and authors.
If you would like to reward your own pupils for their reading efforts you can download certificates from the Read for My School website.
