Between 7 March and 2 April 2019, students at Phoenix House took part in the 200 Million Minutes Reading Challenge – a global reading initiative from education charity Achievement for All.
Why? We know that introducing all children and young people to the habit of reading in everyday life can improve communication skills and brighten future prospects, unlocking new worlds and possibilities.
Each week, students in KS2 and KS3 added up their reading minutes and put them towards our centre’s score. Altogether, we recorded a total of 7,878 reading minutes and, on average, each pupil read for 281 minutes during the challenge.
