Thursday 24th January
The Reading Success launch, from 4-5pm in the Learning Resource Centre.
This will be a chance to find out all about the scheme, and meet staff who are involved.
Great author websites to try out
David Walliams' website has fun activities and details of all his books.
Fans of Jacqueline Wilson will enjoy her interactive site.
Reading Success is our new literacy scheme, aimed at improving students' attainment and confidence in reading.
Parents, carers, and family members such as grandparents and older siblings are asked to read with Year 7 students for a total of an hour each week. Parents/carers will be supplied with support information, top tips and reading suggestions via the school website and email, or on paper if required.
In addition, students joining the Reading Success group will be issued with a login for Spellzone, an online spelling programme. Students without access to the internet at home will be offered support in the Learning Resource Centre before or after school.
