LRC - Reading Activities
World Book Week
Every year an author comes in to visit during this week so that students can meet them, ask questions about their books and even buy them.
Our annual Year 7 Readathon takes place during February in the run up to World Book Day on the first Thursday of March every year. They are challenged to read as much as possible during February and to obtain sponsorship from friends and family the proceeds of which go to a children's cancer charity.
We managed to raise over £644 in 2015!
Other book related activities that week include a House quiz and a DEAR session where the whole school drops everything they are doing or learning and reads for 10 minutes to raise the profile of reading for that day.

Scholastic C2C Brochure
This comes out every 2 months and contains over 70 up to date single titles and many popular complete sets e.g Diary of a Wimpy Kid, as well as stationery. The brochure is available at the counter for everyone to take away and to buy at considerable discounts.
Just fill in the titles you want to buy on the order form on the back page, present it together with the money, either cash or a cheque, made payable to Goffs School, to Mrs Mackay or Miss Grant and they will order the book and let you know when it has arrived. You can also order them yourself online at: http://shop.scholastic.co.uk/catalogues
