World Book Day 2022 Be Proud, Read Aloud Competition Winners

We had an amazing 140 entries in our Be Proud, Read Aloud competition: video or audio clips of children reading a favourite book extract with fluency, expression and enjoyment. We wondered how many children would enter but we needn’t have worried.

We were pleased and proud of every entry: standards were very high and reflect so well on the children and the support that they are getting from home. Thank you to everyone who entered – you all read fantastically well and, where appropriate, the costumes and settings really delighted us! We are especially grateful to Maude in Y2 whose wonderful early entry was used to inspire other children.

The class winners were:

Nursery: Tilly reading The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Oliver reading The Gruffalo

RPK: Róisín reading Such a Fuss

RPT: Isla reading Peter Rabbit

1B: Harrison reading The Smartest Giant in Town

1GK: Amy reading Dear Zoo
