Year 7 Media Week

Work with all of year 7, delivering a unique and engaging non-fiction Literacy Intervention using digital media.

The Workshop

Over the course of three days (with three cohorts), produce a junior student-led prospectus - focussing on writing for purpose whilst considering a target audience – and a promotional film, focussing on oral literacy.

The Result

The whole of year 7 engaged in all literacy activities with the end products of a student-led prospectus and promotional film, used to effectively market the school to target primaries. This is now a legacy project, and is repeated every year!

"We work with Engaging Education every year to develop and deliver bespoke projects with all of Year 7. We wanted a project that, whilst still clearly a literacy based initiative, would improve students’ teamwork and confidence in their first few weeks here at QEGS. Although the workshops are exactly what we need, what is equally important is the student-led prospectus and DVD to promote our offer to local primary schools in a unique and innovative package. These have been used to great effect; enhancing our primary school visits and increasing prospective student engagement. I would certainly recommended working alongside Engaging Education!"
