Word Millionaires

In the academic year 2014/15, 15.6% of Felsted Prep children had read more than a million words. In 2015/16, 17.3% had read over a million, and this year we have again broken that record with 18.6% of our children becoming word millionaires.

Felsted has 382 children using Accelerated Reader from Years 3-8. Of these, one child has read over 10 million words, one has read over five million, one over four million, six over three million, six over two million and 51 who have read over one million words.

  • One has read over five million,
  • One over four million,

Our millionaires are celebrated in assembly where they receive a certificate and an owl brooch that is coloured bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond, ruby, and emerald, turquoise, jet or amethyst, depending on the milestone reached. The children then wear these brooches for the rest of the school year. We list all word millionaires on an honours board outside the library, and a millionaire’s celebration party is hosted for all our avid readers at the end of the year.
