Sometimes even I am amazed by the tenacity our children show in setting themselves a huge goal and then meeting it!
This lovely Hall Parker set himself a challenge of reading 10 million words. We thought it would keep him busy reading until at least Year 6, but he has surprised us all in reading 10 million words in Accelerated Reader this term, and he is only in Year 5!
We have only had AR in school for just two years and so this is a fabulous achievement.
I am so proud of him and his mum tells me that, even though he has achieved his goal, he continues to love reading and is as committed to his reading as ever. We could not ask any more than this!
