Reading Competition For Matilda Tickets


Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 can win the opportunity to see Matilda the Musical at Milton Keynes Theatre on 13th June by reading as much as possible and quizzing as much as possible!

The competition is being run as part of the school’s Accelerated Reader programme which encourages children in Years 7, 8 and 9 to read for 30 minutes a day and then take quizzes on the books they have read.  

Ten students in each of the three year groups will be selected based on the most amount of words read until 4th June. 

Mrs Sue Joyce, Librarian at St Paul’s, explained:  “The more children read and quiz the better equipped they are to face the challenge of lessons.  Since Accelerated Reader was introduced more pupils have reached an age appropriate reading ability than previously.” 

She added: “Students have already been reading enthusiastically and tracking their progress on the library board.  We wish everyone luck in the competition – it’s a fantastic prize!”
