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, NQT in our Humanities Faculty, created new literacy displays to enable his KS3 to visualise their writing by using Rothko imagery. Student commitment to writing has improved and the scaffolding is supporting independent learning in the classroom.
Julie Sharrock, has created resources to support Year 11 active revision. Student work is improving as a result.
The Science Faculty have been creating new literacy mats. Impact to be shared in our next T&L bulletin by Ben Nassau and Sam Badawy.
