Drop Everything and Read

As part of our continued drive to promote a love of reading at Montsaye Academy, we will be launching our ‘Drop Everything and Read’ (DEAR) initiative on Monday 12th June 2017. This initiative will run for all of this summer term. All students in Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and staff will spend 20 minutes each day at a designated time reading a fiction book of their choice.

In preparation for the launch on Monday 12th June, students need to choose a fiction book and bring it to school every day.

Mrs Lantz, our librarian, has an excellent selection of fiction books available should students need assistance with choosing a book.

Year 11 and 13 are completing exams so they are exempt from this initiative.  As Year 12 are currently preparing for end of year exams, they will not start DEAR until Monday 3rd July.

Here are the dates and times of the DEAR sessions for this term:
