“If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.” – Roald Dahl

Every week there will be 3 short stories for you to read. Each short story will be accompanied by 10 reading comprehension questions.

It is your job to complete these 10 questions and submit these to be in with a chance to gain your golden tickets to a very special event when we are back at school.

Golden tickets will be given to the Top 50 students who have answered the most questions correctly and made progress on their reading.

To enter all you need to do is email your answers each day to the email address: reading@arena-birmingham.academy

Please make sure you submit your ‘Reading Name’ that you would like to be shown on the leaderboard.

The leaderboard will be updated every week so keep an eye out for your score!

Happy Reading!
