Literacy Project

Transformation of Environments and Social Responsibility

During the first half of Autumn Term,  our topic in literacy has been ‘transformation of environments and social responsibility’. Each class group have been studying a text;

Class 1 – The Something (Rebecca Cobb)

Class 2 – The Greenling (Levi Pinfold)

Class 3 – The Promise (Nicola Davies)

Class 4 – (Varmints (Helen Ward)

To enhance our learning the whole school were involved in a literacy project led by a specialist education company, Literacy Counts. This included a series of professional workshops for all classes, including dramatisation -  to encourage evocative writing; art -developed from gathering words, phrases and poem extracts; music – inspired by the children, using extracts of figurative language, including phrases and ideas put together in the form of a school anthem.

We invited parents, family, friends and Governors to watch a performance of our new school anthem entitled, We Achieve, We Believe. Matt Baker, the musician involved with the writing of the anthem, was here to accompany the children. There was an opportunity afterwards to view the gallery of artwork and see the children’s written work in their classes.
