Deliver an engaging Summer School whilst incorporating fun literacy and numeracy activities.
A 5 day literacy and numeracy programme.
Day 1 – Film Trailers – Planning, storyboarding and filming!
Day 2 – Comic Creations – Produce individual comic strips, focussing on creative writing.
Day 3 – Board Game Design – Design a board game on the school for prospective students.
Day 4 – Magazine – Creating a student magazine about the week.
Day 5 – Celebration Day – Parents invited for the première of the film trailers!
A clear positive impact on the students, with the cohort to have an identified higher attendance rate than their peers within first year. Transitional resources were used by the school and to also promote next years’ Summer School.
