Guru Nanak Multi Academy Trust

The Reading Certificates

Reading is encouraged as an activity that enables students to better access the English curriculum in particular and all other subjects generally.  To challenge students we have a list of recommended books according to Year 7, 8 and 9.  Students select a book from the list, read and then use the Reading Room in Google Classroom to show off their reading. 

 

Students do the following:

1 - select a book from the KS3 Recommended Reads (check back every now and then as it will be updated)

2 - Read the book (probably the most important part of the process!)

3 - Show your knowledge and understanding of the book by:
- making a video book report (make it at least 2 minutes or it does not count)
OR - record a song about the book (make it at least 2 minutes or it does not count)
OR - copy over your Eclipse 100 Word comment (less than 100 words does not count)
OR - make a meme (it needs to be clever not rude, if it is unsuitable then it does not count)
OR - make a video where you act a piece of the book (make it at least 2 minutes or it does not count)

4 - Upload your video, recording, comment or meme into the Reading Room stream

5 - Repeat until you have shown 4 books have been read and receive a BRONZE certificate

6 - Repeat until you have shown 8 books have been read and receive a SILVER certificate

7 - Repeat until you have shown 12 books have been read and receive a GOLD certificate
