Berkshire One Million Minutes Challenge

Berks 1 MillHow many minutes can Berkshire primary school children read for in the One Million Minutes reading challenge?  Newbury based award-winning education charity Achievement for All has teamed up with Peters Books & Furniture to launch the One Million Minutes reading challenge across Berkshire.

Achievement for All and Peters Books & Furniture are asking primary school classes across the area to join together to read for as much as they can in just two weeks.  Just ten minutes of extra reading a day can have a huge impact on a child's education and it's hoped that schools across the area will want to be involved, celebrating reading and promoting a love of literacy.

One Million Minutes is a national challenge rolling out region by region throughout the year. There's a powerful competitive element as classes can see how they are doing against other classes in their school and across the area - plus the opportunity to win a great prize. Teachers can register their classes at https://millionminutes.afaeducation.org
They are then asked to contribute the number of minutes they read for each day to the Readometer, which will keep track of running totals and show which classes are contributing the most via the leader board.  If all that wasn’t reason enough to take part – there’s also a great prize for the winning school! Peters Books & Furniture are donating a brand new fully equipped reading corner complete with a range of fabulous new books worth over £1000!
