March into Reading 2024

March into Reading is our brand new initiative for 2024. We wanted to share our love for books and reading for a whole month, rather than just a day (World Book Day). And so 'March into Reading' was born...

Log your 100,000 Pages reading here

Throughout the month, we have a wide range of competitions, workshops/activities, challenges and more for students to get involved with, including:

  • The 100,000 Pages Challenge - we are challenging our school community to read 100,000 pages collectively throughout March. Just read as much as you can throughout the month, and log your pages at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RN8QVJ2 
  • Our 100,000 page challenge also ties into our Readathon this year, so if students would like to get sponsored for their reading they can do this too. 
  • World Book Day this year includes our Live Action Where's Wally, The Masked Reader, LRC Book Swap, World Book Day tokens/free books...and of course, lots of reading!
  • KS3 Homework - all Key Stage 3 homework throughout the month will be reading focussed
  • Teachers will be taking some time during PM registration to read from their favourite books in our THS Storytime sessions
  • Percy Jackson Screenings - every Tuesday and Friday after school in the LRC, come and watch the new adaptation of this popular book series
  • Author Visit - Tia Fisher, author of 'Cross the Line' , which is currently taking THS staff and students by storm, visits THS on Thursday 14 March
  • Virtual Author talks - with Joseph Coehlo and Laura Wood & Polly Crosby, Friday 8 March
  • Students can test their vocabulary and spelling with our very first THS Spelling Bee. Open to Y7-9
  • Year 10/11 Writing Competition - Open to all Y10/11 students. Submit a piece of creative writing (no more than 500 words) on the theme of 'Mystery'
  • Book Poster Competition - create a poster to share your favourite book with the THS Community. Our favourites will go on display in the LRC
  • Design the new LRC Mascot - create a friendly new book related character/logo to represent the LRC. Our favourite will become part of a new LRC brand within THS!
  • Our giant Wordle and a range of other literacy games will be taking place throughout the month in the English Learning Zone

Happy reading!
