Welcome to our Literacy Page

Literacy Challenge:
 
There is a weekly literacy challenge for all students to undertake. It consists of one task that should take around 5-10 minutes to complete during form time. Tasks are sent out every Monday morning to form tutors. 
 
Each week, the winning form will all receive one HP per student. At the end of the year, the form with the most “wins” in the challenges will receive an exciting prize!
 
Word of the Week: 

There is a 'Word of the Week' that is displayed on the screens around school and it is shared with all students by their form tutors on a Monday. 

Students will be awarded for using the word correctly and relevantly in lessons.
