How to improve literacy.
Whilst pupils will be challenged to build upon their existing knowledge in lessons, the use of English is not, and should not, be confined to the classroom. In order to help your child to achieve in English, there are a range of activities your child could be encouraged to do in order to help them to achieve their best in their English studies.
The resources which are mentioned on our website such as through the 'Useful websites' icon can be used to enhance your child's grasp of the subject. Furthermore, as a consequence of your child reading a variety of texts outside of school, it will enable their comprehension and understanding of English to become greater; reading newspapers and magazines, different TV programmes as well as a variety of books which encompass different genres will help your child to progress, and build upon the skills they are learning in the classroom.
English is not a dry subject; encouraging pupils to learn things about the world around them, and to be creative, are all aspects of the subject, and the examples above are ways of allowing students to fully appreciate the subject, and therefore to hopefully fully appreciate it into the future.
