We have been thrilled with the number of students achieving Word Millionaire status in Year 7. To date, 21 students have been awarded a Word Millionaire badge, certificate and a pair of cinema tickets to see a film of their choice.
Ziji Lee, Xander Linder and Hanul McCowan top the Word Millionaire table with all three students having read over four million words and passing 150 Accelerated Reader quizzes between them. Lokryn Corin and Jake Scotney have read over three million words each, whilst Rose Hammond, Iona Benson, Amy Jackson, Kensa Arthur and Leo Emerton have all reached double Word Millionaire status. Well done to Enid Kirk, Aidan Helliwell, Faith Medley, Charlie Harvey, Samuel Trelevan, Amyln Evans, Lilia Rowe, Anya Morales Hoyle, Enzo Favata, Harvey Allen, Leah Powell and Oscar Halls who have all surpassed the million word mark.
Popular reads amongst our Word Millionaires are the ‘Skulduggery Pleasant’ series by Derek Landy, ‘The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel’ (a series of six books by Michael Scott), ‘The Cherub’ series, by Robert Muchamore, ‘The Mortal Instruments’ series, by Cassandra Clare, and Michelle Paver’s ‘Wolf Brother’ series. Students are reading a diverse range of fiction from stories set six thousand years ago, present day teenage spy stories and dystopian fiction. All novels are available in our library.
