Attention Years 7 and 8

November 1, 2017 9:54 am

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our new and exciting initiative for Years 7 and 8 – DEAR (Drop Everything and Read).

This has been to designed to encourage and promote an ethos around reading for enjoyment and embed the necessary inference skills in readiness for Key Stage 4. By taking part in this reading activity for ten minutes at the start of every lesson 4, it is hoped that students reading skills will continue to develop; meaning accessing cross curricular texts in all subjects is easier.

It is due to commence on Monday 6th November 2017 and will require your child to bring a reading book to school every day. Books can also be taken out from the library if preferred.
