ERIC! Everyone READS in Cockshut!

With the start of a busy new term, pupils at Cockshut are finding time to enjoy reading. Reading is the key to success and not just in English. Improved reading increases literacy; imagination and confidence in tackling all walks of life. All pupils in Key Stage 3 are expected to have two books with them in order to enjoy the reading slots provided throughout their week at Cockshut. Other reading texts such as magazines; graphic novels and newspapers are also welcome. We encourage parents and carers to discuss reading with their children and to remind them of the importance of having two reading texts with them every day. Staff at College are more than happy to discuss appropriate and interesting ‘reads’ for your children. The READING STRATEGY is embedded within the philosophy of high quality provision; progression and attainment at Cockshut. More events and initiatives are planned particularly after the successful Open Evening where the English Department gave a book to every visiting child. More details are available from form tutors; the English Department and Mr.Storey, ASL English.
