Hugh Sexey children enjoy 100 free books
HUGH Sexey Middle School near Wedmore has been awarded 100 free books after taking part in a national reading initiative.
The school registered for ‘Read for my School’, a programme aimed at children in Years Five and Six.
Head teacher Jenny Venning said: “All of the pupils were encouraged to read from a range of genres. Each book they read was logged against the school and we were consistently featured on the top ten leader board, which then led to us being selected to receive 100 free books for the school.
“Our head librarian Nicky Palmer was delighted that the school achieved such a good rating and is very grateful to Pearson Publishing for awarding us the books.”
