The East Cambridgeshire MP launched his Summer Reading Champions initiative to encourage reading during the school holidays.
His office raised more than 2,000 new books for Year 4 pupils in North East Cambridgeshire – but now the results are in, who read the most?
In first place is Westwood Primary School in March, followed by Peckover Primary School in Wisbech and Glebelands Primary Academy in Chatteris.
Fourth place goes to Burrowmoor School in March and in fifth place is Kingsfield Primary School in Chatteris.

In the back of every book donated via the Read to Succeed campaign was a library token, for children to take to their local library and take part in the Reading Agency’s Summer Reading Challenge.
As part of Steve’s campaign, those who took part in the challenge could win prizes including a film screening at The Light Cinema.
Also up for grabs was a swimming pool party at a local swimming pool or a Roald Dahl’s ‘Revolting Rhymes’ Workshop Session with Rhubarb Theatre.
As well as a Fenland Bushcraft Workshop Session or Animal Handling Workshop with Lion Learners.
