Grantham school secures grant for 3,000 new books

Book enthusiasts at National Junior School have been awarded 3,000 books as part of a grant from The Foyle Foundation.

The donation is part of the junior school’s new reading system.

Year 6 teacher Mr Grimwood said: “The school has enjoyed fantastic success this year in reading.

“A new reading system has injected enthusiasm and a sense of achievement and we have seen our Year 6 SATs results improve by 12 per cent as a result.

“The Foyle Foundation were very excited to hear about our project and keen to see it grow and fulfil its potential. “

Mr Grimwood has carefully chosen nearly 3,000 books to suit all abilities and interests and introduced a wide range of exciting new and sought after titles.

The pupils are now eager to get reading and add to their word count. The school has collectively read over 55 million words in the first three months of term and eight pupils have read over one million words each.
