Y5 reading competition

The Junior girls and boys excelled in their reading competition


Over the past few weeks, the Year 5 pupils have been working hard practising their readings for the Inter-House competition which took place prior to half term. The pupils delivered their readings to their classes and their teachers then had the challenging task of selecting 2 finalists from each house to take part in the individual competition for their parents.

Mr Richard Griffiths, Head of English at Bolton Boys’ Senior School, came to adjudicate the competition and was extremely impressed by the quality of all of the readings he heard.




Well done to all of the finalists, and special congratulations to the winners of both the boys’ and girls’ competition:
