Pupils learn about literacy
A NEW scheme to improve pupils’ literacy was launched at Chuchill Academy during Literacy Week last week.
This year teachers will be focusing on improving literacy in all lessons.
They had a special assembly last week all about reading, writing and communicating.
Sixth form students explained to the younger children how vital literacy skills are in school and later life.
Tutors have already given pupils a range of literacy activities including word puzzles, quizzes and a literacy walk.

The walk saw children find information put up around the school on doors, windows, trees and walls to sharpen their reading and writing.
The school’s Learning Resource Centre showed pupils how to use the internet for research.
