Parkside's Crypto-library challenge!
18th November 2021

This half term, pupils have been taking part in our Crypto-library challenge. The competition was tied to pupils' use of Accelerated Reader and their quiz-taking. For every book that had been read, pupils then took their AR quiz, as normal. If they received over 80%, they were given the chance to try to guess the 3-digit code from our crypto-box. The correct 3-digits would open the box and the prizes inside would be theirs! The prizes were a brand new book, a £10 Amazon gift voucher and a bar of chocolate.

This week, we had a winner! William..... in 5RM correctly guessed the code!

The competition led to a 585 quizzes and attempts to decode the Crypto-library, resulting in an incredible 12,839,867 words being read by our pupils! A fantastic effort by all.

Reading competitions are run regularly in school. Don't forget the class competition for the most words read and to keep reading to ensure you earn points for your House. Keep your eyes peeled for the next BIG reading competition!
