200 million minutes

10 December 2019 Share

Achievement for All is running another global reading challenge - 200 million minutes- encouraging schools across the globe to make time for reading. 

The challenge launches 5th March 2020 - World Book Day - and finishes on 2nd April. 

This is a great chance for all schools to get involved and measure the reading that happens in their school; don’t forget reading for 20 minutes a day results in a child encountering 1.8 million words over the year (as quoted by David Didau) so there’s a lot of educational benefit.
