Following the identification of “Middlesbrough’s 100 Best Reads”, reading logs were designed for the four age ranges, distributed to every primary school in the town, and made available online for Educated at Home pupils. Children were asked to submit book reviews on books read – over 500 book reviews were returned with Ameera, from Newham Bridge, winning the iPad Mini, kindly donated by Stagecoach North East.
The feedback from schools was incredibly positive “Thank you for the Reading Logs – they’re fantastic! They’ve given staff some more ideas for whole class reading books as well!” Reading Log displays in school libraries have added to the Reading for Pleasure agenda.
The Reading Logs are available to download via the Literacy Trust website
