Year 7s' Gideon Ellans joins the Millionaire Readers' Club
What a FANTASTIC achievement! Well done to Gideon who became a “Word Millionaire” recently, using the Accelerated Reader programme.
At The Bulwell Academy all Key Stage Three students are positively encouraged during their weekly library visits to read for pleasure at school and to continue this at home.
The Accelerated Reader programme is simple: a pupil reads a book that interests them, takes an online quiz, gets immediate feedback, and is motivated to make progress with their reading skills. When a student passes a quiz, the accumulated number of words in the books are calculated. Students who excel in reading for pleasure are rewarded when they reach the "one million words" milestone.
Gideon thoroughly enjoyed the Harry Potter series of books to achieve his goal. For his reward, Gideon chose a book he would like to own as well as receiving an exclusive "Word Millionaire" badge, presented by the Principal, Mr Williams.
Great reading! Well done!
