Whole school literacy ideas

 

Wellacre are looking to share ideas and successes for whole school literacy.  In 2015, we received two accolades:

  • Best performance by Boys taking IGCSE English Literature
  • Excellent performance by Boys taking IGCSE English Language

In the Autumn of 2016,  Rob Chisnall (HOF) recruited literacy champions from each Faculty to further drive and embed literacy across our curriculum.  The English Faculty have worked with John Nield this year, to improve extended writing,  all staff are currently investigating the impact ‘Rothko paintings’ on literacy.  james gillan rothko

Julie Sharrock, has created resources to support Year 11 active revision.  Student work is improving as a result.  History rothko
