EHS Year 7 Readathon 2020
02 October 2020
As part of their transition into Edgbaston High School, the new Year 7 girls were invited to take part in a sponsored read over the summer holidays. They were provided with a reading list that included literary classics such as, Peter Pan by J.M Barrie, The Wizard of Oz by Frank L Baum, Five Children and It by E. Nesbit.
Since September, students were invited to dip into the book boxes provided for them in their form rooms and to discuss their favourites with friends old and new.
As this year’s readathon drew to an end, Year 7 spent the afternoon on Friday 25th September in forms discussing the books they had read (whilst eating Freddos), writing ‘Tweet’ style book reviews and competing in literary quizzes.
Total amount raised and prizes to be announced over the next couple of weeks.
Well Done Year 7 – an epic effort!
