Literacy

“A reader lives a thousand lives…” George R.R. Martin

During the school closure we encourage our students, with support from their parents, to continue to develop their literacy skills.  Just 20 minutes reading per day can help pupils make progress. Listed below are some links to a variety of websites which we hope you will enjoy.

There is so much information available and we've put together a few suggestions:

Video showing how Amrit Birdi illustrated the cover of the new Alex Rider graphic novel, Ark Angel by Anthony Horowitz and Antony Johnston

BookTrust website including Cressida Cowell reading from ‘How to Ride a Dragon’s Storm’

Literacy Trust Family Zone providing reading resources and activities for different ages.

Scottish Book Trust authors on demand

Shakespeare Week resources themed around the bard and his plays – for our Years 7-10 who are all studying Shakespeare in their English lessons this half term

Toppsta with books of the month and other activities, including the opportunity to review books you've read

World Book Day Masterclasses offering writing tips, creative resources and "academy" lessons
