SOUTHERN ENGLAND

Hi Everyone
Another accomplished result was posted by our authors' team in Havant today. The team of five consisting of Andrew Norriss, James Riordan, Craig Simpson, Andy Briggs and Ali Sparks once again proved too good for the KLQ teams in this southern heat.
The prizes were spread widely and many kids walked away with books to get signed from the book shop or else gained a book from the category round.
Robert Mays' Odiham School won both first and third place which was quite an achievement. Portsmouth High School was second. The difference between first and third was 1.5 marks. So a very tight squeeze today for the top positions.
Great results
Wayne

Thanks to Wayne for bringing this inspirational idea to the UK. It's become a regular event in our reading calendar at Robert May's School and generates a lot of interest in books and reading across the school. It was great to see the enthusiasm and enjoyment on the kids' faces at the heat yesterday in Havant - we all had a such a good time! Thanks too to Liz Bridge for organising it. Happy reading!
