A Book for Christmas 2019

Literacy & Numeracy

 

Students in Y7 and Y8, who receive Literacy lessons, were all given a book for Christmas this week to help promote reading for pleasure.

 

The books came presented in a specially wrapped golden box, and proved to be an unexpected treat when they were presented at the beginning of their Literacy lesson.

Pupils were given the choice of six titles, which included books by Anthony Horrowitz, Michelle Magorian and Robert Westall, and a total of 148 students benefited from the initiative.

 

Reading widely and often is proven to help improve students’ academic performance, broaden vocabulary and has positive impacts on mental health and wellbeing.
