Drop Everything and Read!
“I read my eyes out and can’t read half enough… the more one reads the more one sees we have to read.” – John Adams
The second RGS Drop Everything and Read Week is drawing to a close. Across the school, novels, articles and poetry have been enjoyed; biographies, journals and reports have been dissected. Students have been set reading by departments instead of homework and they have certainly risen to the opportunity. Not only has homework been given over to reading, but students have also had the chance to start the day with some quiet and focussed time for reading in form time.
Over in the library there has been a Book Swap, with students invited to bring in their own books to exchange with each other, and a photo competition to see what kind of books pupils’ pets might borrow in the zoologically unlikely event they could read them.
As we head into a busy time of year for exams, we hope that students still manage to carve out some time to read.
