Year 5 Reading Competiton

Year 5 pupils take part in the Reading Competition

Over the past few weeks, the Year 5 pupils have been working hard practising their readings for the Inter-House competition.   All pupils delivered their reading to their peers and class teachers.  The staff then faced the difficult decision of selecting two pupils from each house to take part in the individual competition.


                             Year 5 boys: finalists                                                  Year 5 girls: 1st, joint  2nd and joint 3rd

Excerpts ranged from a wide variety of books, including classics such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Wind in the Willows to more recent stories like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The English Roses, written by Madonna and Billionaire Boy, written by David Walliams.


                                                                 Year 5  girls: finalists              Year 5 boys: 1st, 2nd and 3rd

Adjudicator, Mrs Emma Peers, Head of English at the Girls’ Senior School was presented with a difficult task in trying to pick the winners.   She commented that the readings had been chosen well by each pupil and that they were all confident, clear and entertaining when speaking.
