1-day sponsored read

Castle Manor Academy run a One Day Readathon Challenge, building up a buzz around Readathon for a few weeks leading up to the event and then running the whole event in one day.

Rebecca Neal, Partnership Librarian at Castle Manor Academy says “It helps to draw in a lot of our students who find it difficult to access reading and struggle to build self-esteem regarding books. They often feel very special and lucky to be able to miss lessons for the day allowing us to build a positive relationship with reading. Students are chomping at the bit to read a book if it gets them out of certain subjects!”
