Launching our Book Vending Machine
On Friday, we were delighted to have launched our new Reading for Pleasure initiative – our brand new Book Vending Machine located in Maple Hall. Huge thanks to HPSA for funding this!
In order to be in with a chance to choose their very own book from our amazing vending machine, children must move their peg up the reading challenge chart in their class book corner each time they read and record in their reading record book. If by Friday lunchtime they have read 5 times that week, they will be entered into a random draw where in achievement assembly, one child from each house will be given a special, golden coin. They can then take their golden coin to the vending machine and choose a special book of their choice to keep and read for pleasure!
The challenge week runs from Friday to Friday so reading over the weekend definitely counts!
In addition to their new book, they will also take home our Hazelwood Reading Celebration book where they have the chance to decorate a page in their house scrap book, which celebrates their new chosen book, their favourite book from home or their favourite author.
To see the video (with huge thanks to Miss McBride, Miss Michel and the ever-keen Mr Oliver) please click below.
We hope that the children will enjoy this added incentive when reading for pleasure at home.
