Last week it was our Accelerated Reader Rewards Week here at Horizon. On Tuesday, the top 20 AR readers in Y7 & 8 were invited to attend our annual Easter Tales & Teapots event hosted by Director of Literacy, Miss Gardner, and our Librarian, Mrs Porter-Nash: Students listened to an Easter tale whilst they tucked into delicious Easter biscuits and sipped on hot chocolate. They also played a game of ‘Chinese Whispers’ (Y7 competed against Y8) in which they had to pass the titles of popular teenage books from one end of the line to the other and recall the authors – Y7 won! On Thursday and Friday, Y7 Draco and Y8 Pegasus were treated to Rewards Breakfasts in the Restaurant during tutor time as their Houses topped the AR leader board this term. In the celebration assemblies this week, Y7 and Y8 students also received certificates and badges in recognition of their achievements in the AR Programme. The top readers in Year 7 and 8 are Liam and Katie who have accumulated almost 4,000,000 words between them this academic year – a phenomenal achievement. Keep calm and keep reading!
