Read to Succeed

The Hampshire Cricket Ground lion mascot visited Shirley Infant School to deliver an assembly about the Read to Succeed Challenge and to share his passion for playing cricket and reading. This involves the children reading for 20 minutes for 30 days and if completed they receive a certificate and a possible prize. The children look forward to the Lion’s second visit where he will award certificates to those who have completed the challenge. 


We were re-visited by a slightly differenet mascot, Rory the Lion, on Tuesday 20th May to celebrate the children's achievements.  Below are photos of the Year R & Year 2 classes with Rory (unfortunately, Year 1 were busy doing some important work).
