In Key Issues, pupils have come up with products that will help improve the literacy of certain groups.
The pupils had to decide who to aim their product at- children (if so, which age group) or adults. Their objective was to either encourage people to read, by creating fun, exciting products, and/ or something that helped people to learn to read and write.
Mr Summers as Curriculum Leader for English judged the products and Mr Crompton handed these out.
The winners were:
Gold- Dublin Avery and Ella Turnball- North
Their product was a series of tasks that developed the reading and writing skills of primary age pupils. Mr Summers particularly liked the design, as well as the fact that the product could be used by the children, on their own.
Silver- Nathaniel Brisco and Sean Fuller
Their product was a learning aid aimed at both a child and parent. Mr Summers particularly liked the thought that had gone into the design as well as the fact that the parent could progress their own literacy by supporting their child.
Bronze- Safa Samih
Safa created a game which by playing it, helped establish key literacy ideas.
The fact that the rules of the game and were easy to understand- essential for the target audience impressed Mr Summers.
Mr Summers found the judging task a tough one; there were many creative and well-presented ideas.
