Reading Registrations – A part of the Berwick Reads Project
We know just how vital reading for pleasure is intellectual growth and development, and we understand the importance of being reading role models for our young people. We have two Reading Registrations each week for Year 9, 10 and 11 students:
Wednesday – Private Reading. Students are expected to bring a book for quiet, private reading.
Thursday – Shared Reading. Students listen to recordings of teachers reading aloud from classic fiction and non-fiction texts.
This year, we have had readings from a variety of books including A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson and The Almighty Dollar by Dharshini David. Reading Registrations continued throughout lockdown, with recordings being made available to all students by their form teachers through our virtual learning platform.
Students are able to borrow books from our new library, and we hope we have inspired some budding scientists and economists to get reading!
