Literacy

One of our many aims at Brockhill is to ensure our students leave school with an expert ability to communicate effectively. We want our young people to enter the world with a proficient grasp of both spoken and written English.

 

Travelling Literacy Targets

Every term, students will select a ‘Travelling Literacy Target’. They will then aim to work in this literacy target in every subject. At the end of the term, students will reflect on whether they have achieved their target or made progress towards achieving it. If they have, they will select another target or continue with the same target if they feel they need more time working on it.

 

Please ask your son/daughter what his/her ‘Travelling Literacy Target’ is.
