Million Word Challenge

Vandyke students face a sizeable reading challenge as they attempt to read one million words in a short time! Students will be asked to monitor their reading habits and tally up the number of words they’re reading each week.

This joint initiative between the English department and the Library will involve students across all year groups thinking about the way that reading permeates every aspect of our life. From catching up with friends on social media, to tackling the exceptionally lengthy “War and Peace”, all words read will contribute to the total amount, which will be monitored and recorded each week on our Million Word Challenge Thermometer.
