Pupils at William Stockton Primary School in Ellesmere Port have got the  passport to success.

The youngsters, in Key Stage 2, have  signed up to do the Pioneer’s new  schools project – the Reading Passport  – which encourages pupils to discover  more about the world around them.

Headteacher Moira Atkins said: “We  are always looking for projects that  inspire reading for our pupils and are  very much looking forward to working  with our local paper on the Reading  Passport scheme'.”

Developed by CMC International  and The News Foundation, the Reading Passport is a pocket-sized booklet  containing 15 fun and educational  activities that develop a wide range of  skills as students explore the people,  places and events that shape the exciting world of current events.

Every participating student will receive their very own passport, personalised with the school name or  logo, and a copy of the Pioneer every  week for six weeks.

During that time, they will be asked  to complete the activities found within  the passport.

At the end of the project, each child  will receive a Certificate of Achievement.

Teachers also receive a class pack  with information on how to operate  the project, comprehensive notes,  posters, great classroom ideas and  news activities.

In addition, if you send in a photograph of your Reading Passport pupils, we will feature them in the newspaper and online on our website.
