Star Reader

All year 7 and 8 students participate in the Accelerated reader programme. This involves them reading a book of their choice and quizzing it on the computer. This gives them a score and also tells them how many words they have read. Amazingly we have a student in year 7 who has achieved a million words read this early in the school term.

Willow has read over 1, 200, 000 words since September. To celebrate this achievement Willow has been awarded an Amazon Kindle Fire and certificate.

The books she has read are; Nightmares, Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets, Deathly Hallows, Order of the Phoenix, Cursed Child; Girl Online the series of 3 books; The Isle of the Lost, Terminal, Exposure, Code, Seizure, Virals, 13 Chairs and Private Peaceful.

Congratulations Willow you deserve the reward for your dedication and hard work in reading outside of school.

Poltair School Star Reader
On Friday 17th November, fifty pupils and five staff visited Plymouth Pavilions to take part in the 'Raiders Masterclass' and then watch a live game from the British Basketball League.

All fifty pupils took part in an hour of coaching with the Plymouth Raiders community coaching team on the main court before the Raiders first team played in the evening.

After the coaching the players took part in a question and answer session with all of the BBL team, which allowed Poltair pupils to ask the questions they have always wanted to ask!

We then had the privilege of watching the game live from our balcony seats in which the Plymouth Raiders beat Leeds Force by 94-78 moving them into a mid-table position.

We hope to run another similar trip for pupils across the school in early February.
