After the success of ERIC days last year, there will be one each half term this year. The first ERIC (Everyone Read in Class)day is early in September. All students from year 7-11 spend the opening few minutes of each lesson reading the first chapters of a book. Last year included Shadow by Michael Murpurgo and the opening to The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
