All in all, the 400 or so students have read an amazing 1,289 books, and a total of 43,433,482 words since the beginning of September. That’s a lot of reading and the classes are also managing to score very highly on their quizzes, showing that they understand the books they have chosen to read.

Each quiz taken successfully will add valuable points to the class totals so everyone’s efforts count towards the outcome of the competition. We can expect to see a big rise in the numbers of books and words read by these committed readers!
