Literacy

The aim of the Literacy team at John Hanson is:
 
 To continue the excellent progress we’ve made over the last three years with regards to Literacy;
 To build students oracy skills across the curriculum;
 To focus on literacy inventions in conjunction with the SENCO;
 To enthuse all students to be better readers and writers;
 To further develop the role of our fantastic Learning Resource Centre.
 
We do this through:
 
• Tutor time:
o In all year groups we will explore word study, reading and writing skills, as well as explore current topical issues building discussion skills.
 
o At KS3 we will adopt class readers to instill a love of reading and offer book nights and competitions.
o At KS4 we will learn valuable study skills and explore 16 classic books to read before they’re 16 and offer book nights and competitions.

 
Every year we:
 
• Celebrate World Book Day and World Book night

• Complete the Big Write: an annual writing competition that ensures all pupils have the opportunity to complete an extended piece of writing on a theme that inspires them

We also like to start early, so every Year 6 student who has chosen John Hanson, is given a copy of the book ‘Wonder’ by Raquel J. Palacio.  A text that we use with them in Year 7 during Literacy at tutor time and in their first PSHE day to ensure they adopt a kind attitude to others.
