School Matters Article – A Reading Challenge – Autumn Term 2016

This is an article that recently appeared in ‘School Matters’, a publication aimed at sharing events in Derbyshire schools.

In January, Emily, a Year 11 student, set herself a challenge to read 60 books by Christmas.  By September she had completed her challenge, reading books from a wide range of genres from fantasy to horror, to dystopia and romance.  Despite juggling the demands of GCSEs, she found time to indulge her love of reading between completing her homework and sleeping!

Though it’s difficult to find a favourite amongst these books, she did particularly enjoy The Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas, saying that: “It is totally different from anything I’ve read before.  The world in this book is rich with people, scenery and experiences which allows the reader to completely escape.”

Not satisfied with completing 60 books, Emily has now extended her challenge to 100 by Christmas.  Amongst the titles that she will read is The Leaving by Tara Altebrando which was a gift from school for her outstanding dedication to reading.

Hasland Hall and its cluster of partner primary schools is enjoying a ‘Year of Reading’ this year and Emily is an excellent ambassador for this, as well as an inspiration.
