Tommorrow the MRC begins to hand out the Booked Up books to all year 7 based upon their choices.
We wait until now to help make sure they are collected and it’s great giving them out this side of Christmas. Ho ho ho!
Here is the ‘Podcast’ for the MRC Inter-form Competition 2010-2011
Again well done to C ABa and can anyone beat them next year?

As part of the Year 6 induction days here today and tomorrow at TDA the MRC is involved in several events.
During the i-connect session Year 6 students will attend a rolling programme to introduce them to the Summer Reading Challenge which will help to stop the Summer Holidays Reading dip; raise self-esteem and increase confidence and enjoyment in reading.
The challenge is to read 6 library books and there are lots of rewards and incentives to keep going. Plus a huge celebration for those who successfully read 6 books. We will be following our students and providing further recognition in the Autumn Term.
Later during the induction day there will be a separate session for parents to encourage maximum participation, to allow for a positive start in September for their child.
