Students Celebrate Success at Lit REBEL Awards Ceremony

Our inspirational young readers celebrated their passion for the books they’ve loved reading throughout their lunchtimes this half term, giving book reviews and presentations to our senior members of staff and heads of years earlier today.

The event started with an awards ceremony which was then followed by some student speeches and a pizza party. There was also a special thank you to Mrs Jones, our literacy support specialist at Penrice, who has helped to coordinate the Lit REBEL programme.

Mrs Jones explained:

The Lit REBEL initiative stands for Reading Every Book Extends Language. Aside from encouraging young pupils to read, the aim of the programme is not just about reading any book, it is about reading different types of books and books from different sources to help the pupils widen their vocabulary.

Congratulations to all those students who received certificates today.
