Reading Army Boys rewarded

Football author, Tom Palmer visited Winifred Holtby Academy on Monday 12th December, to talk to our year 8 “ Reading Army boys” about his books that they have enjoyed reading this term.

It was a fitting end to a term where pupils have read a variety of short texts to improve their reading levels.

He told them how important reading was, and that once he had discovered the enjoyment of reading,  it opened up a whole new world to him, and inspired him to write books that he hopes boys will like to read.

To finish off the session he held a penalty shoot- out, based on his question and answer session.
