Several Year 5 students were due to take part in the Northumberland & Durham CA Reading Competition on 2nd February, but snowy conditions sadly prevented us from attending. They were finally able to show off their Latin reading skills today in a Mowden round of the event kindly judged by Mike Smith, organiser of the Northumberland competition. The competition was fierce as the level of talent displayed was very high. The students read with clear pronunciation, good pace and emphasis; it was very tough to judge between them!
