The prized Bookworm badges are up for grabs again for our year 7 and year 8 students.

Students at Cecil Jones are reading avidly to attain their ‘Bookworm’ reading badges. As well as having dedicated reading lessons in English and a school-wide ‘Drop Everything and Read’ session every Thursday afternoon, Year 7 and 8 students are on a rolling programme of taking Accelerated Reader quizzes every two weeks.

At Cecil Jones Academy we understand the importance of books and reading. To instil this in our students we will be combining recognition, competition and rewards to encourage a love of all things reading in our students.

Using  the Accelerated Reader scheme we will be helping students to increase their enjoyment of reading and will be holding individual and inter-tutor competitions to recognise and reward their success.

All our year 7 and year 8 students will have their own tailored reading level to help them get the most out of their books. Once they have finished their books they can take quizzes to test their reading abilities and understanding, and for a bit of competitive fun!

Their Accelerated Reader accounts will total up their word count and when students hit word count goals they earn badges to celebrate their progress and achievement.

Badge winners will be updated regularly to help us recognise and praise our top reading students.
