Reading Minutes @ St Martin’s

To celebrate the Reading Hour and reading at our school we took on the challenge to see how many minutes our school could read during Book Week from Saturday, August 17th – Saturday, August 23rd. ย We planned to count reading minutes at home and in our classrooms. We had no idea how many minutes we would read…

  10. Hello Matthew

    I was amazed at how many minutes our school read for too! It was a fabulous whole school effort!

    Lots of students said they were surprised how many minutes they had actually read when they added them up. Were you surprised by your personal reading minutes?

    Happy reading!

    I was very surprised with how many minutes I read.I could not have read that much because it felt like 5 minutes

  12. Hi Matthew

    When you read a great book you often get lost in the story and don’t notice the time passing – I wonder of that’s what happened to you?

    Happy reading this week!
