Literacy is essential to learning in all subjects across the curriculum. An effective use of language is necessary to develop knowledge, understanding and skills. At Penyrheol, it is our aim to develop learners who use language with confidence, both independently and collaboratively, and in a range of contexts and roles.
KS3 pupils are set personalised Literacy Targets which can be found at the front of their planners and English exercise books. These literacy targets apply not only to English, but to all subjects, as language is used across the curriculum. All Literacy Targets can be found on the side menu.
Some pupils may need to improve in punctuation or spelling, and their target may advise them to use games on the internet to help them.
Listed below are a number of websites pupils can use in order to improve their literacy skills.
- BBC Skillswise: Punctuation
- BBC Skillswise: Apostrophes
- BBC Skillswise: Commas
- BBC KS3 Grammar and Spelling
