i have just started a new job as Literacy co-ordinator. I am really excited about really getting the children interested in the subject as at the moment it seems stale and they are definitely turned off! standards are quite low 50% level 4 in SATs and we have 98% EAL. I am most interested in them enjoying the subject more and as a result get better rather than introducing ideas purely for improving SATs scores. So, any ideas?! i want to make them more independent learners what has worked for you? i was thinking a more thinking skills approach e.g. p4c, drama we already do Big Write thanks!
