Supporting Literacy at home
One of our key priorities at LSA is to develop oracy and communication so that our children are articulate and able to speak and write with confidence and accuracy in every area of the curriculum.
Supporting your child at home is one of the most important things you can do to help develop their literacy skills.
We firmly believe that a collaborative approach to supporting literacy will enable our pupils to succeed in every subject at LSA and become confident, independent young people.
We have signed up to a student newspaper called 'First News' which is read by more than two million young people every week, it covers politics to entertainment, sports to science and everything in between. Weekly issues are shared in form time during ERIC on a Monday morning, after reading an article the form group discusses the topic. It's a great way for your child to expand their vocabulary whilst growing their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Should your child wish to read more of the interesting articles in First News, you can find this weeks issue below:
