Drop Everything And Read!
Our Head of English, Mrs Perrett, tells us all about it…
“DEAR” started two years ago and it really began as part of our literacy drive. We want to get pupils (and teachers!) to recognise that literacy isn’t just about what happens in the English department but across every subject. Some departments are great and really embrace it. The dream would be to snapshots of everyone getting involved: ground staff, the Head etc… with the idea of them all being caught reading.
Many thanks to everyone who participated in DEAR last week. Your support is very much appreciated and hopefully you all enjoyed the 15 minutes of peace!
Special thanks to the PE department for sending this photo, too.
