Literacy in Tutor Time

Literacy in Tutor Time


Literacy in tutor time aims to enhance, develop and stretch our students to be fluent writers, readers and speakers in today’s society.

Year 7 and 8 students partake in various inter-tutor competitions throughout the year which include:

Spelling Bee, Designing a Reality T.V. show, Just a Minute, creating their own poems and World Book Day tweets.

Reading widely is encouraged through the Cheam Reading Challenge Blog, as well as through their Year 7 Learning to Learn lessons and in their Year 7 English lessons. By encouraging a holistic approach to reading, the students develop an appreciation for reading beyond their lessons.
