Youngsters from Leen Mills Primary School in Hucknall celebrated after winning a summer reading challenge.

The children - aged from four to 11 - were challenged to read six books over the summer holidays and those that did earned themselves a medal. Nearly 90 bookish students from Leen Mills won medals for their summer reading - almost a quarter of the school’s population of 375.

Headteacher Russell Tew said: “It’s good that children keep up with their reading and it’s good that the library is being used a resource - and it’s good that the hard work is kept up through the holidays!”

A spokesperson said: “Children who take part are more enthusiastic about reading, maintain their reading level over the holidays, return to schools keen and ready to learn and boost their confidence and self-esteem.”
