She said: "We want it to encourage the children to read more and to raise funds for children's charities."
Some of the money raised will help the school buy new books, with the rest going to Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity and one other.
"We want to get the children to enjoy reading and to find new authors," she added.
"All of the children are very excited about the readathon and we hope to do it again."
