Leighterton Primary School place books at the heart of their kindness tree

Our Readathon officially finished on Friday and we have already had some sponsor cards and money returned which is great.

I have given them the next week to collect their money in and return it to school – reminding them it wasn’t too late to get a one off pound here and there for reading something to someone!

It was really lovely to hear a child in my class tell me that she was really pleased that her friend had managed to finish her book and that she had given her friend a pound sponsorship – I shared this in celebration assembly, giving the child a heart to go on our school ‘Kindness Tree’.  Readathon has also helped to encourage acts of kindness and supportive friendships in class.
