Hillstone Primary School is home to a very special fairy who goes by the name of Reading Fairy. Nearly every week, she visits each and every class from Reception right up to Year 6. Once she’s in a class, she uses a special name-spinner to randomly choose a child, and if they have read in the last 3 days (or 3 times in the previous week), they win a special prize: a book of their choice from a wide selection of wonderful titles.

Every prize-winner is tweeted about so head to Hillstone’s feed on Twitter (using #readingfairy) to see all our winners so far!

Reading Fairy has been visiting Hillstone for over a year now and has become a very popular figure. When asked, the children had lots of positive things to say about her see below for comments and winners:

Father of Toby in Year 4 explained, “I think it’s motivational as it’s got Toby to read more – not just school books, but other books as well.”
