Literacy Project for Year 6 visitors

Year 6 students from Wellington and Westbrook enjoy literacy workshop

 Students from Wellington & Westbrook work in the Hall

On 18th November, Year 6 students and teachers from Wellington and Westbrook Primary Schools visited Heston Community School to participate in a literacy workshop on the theme of desert islands. Heston’s Year 7 A Team students were fantastic at supporting and guiding the younger pupils in their groups. Students watched film clips, read extracts from the challenging texts ‘Robinson Crusoe’ and ‘Lord of the Flies’ and analysed images from desert island locations to produce a piece of creative writing. Back in their own schools and classes, the students involved are going to create lessons based on the workshop so that they can share their experience with their peers.
