On Wednesday 26th June, Miss Gardner, Director of Literacy, and Miss Foster, Teacher of Art, invited 10 Year 4 boys from Packmoor Primary to spend the day at our academy to take part in a narrative workshop led by 5 of our Year 9 students. The primary aims of the workshop include the following: promote a positive engagement with reading and writing, in addition to encouraging young people to be more environmentally friendly. This initiative is the first of many more which will be taking place in the near future as part of a lottery-funded social action project entitled ‘iWill’ which all OAT schools are undertaking in 2019/2020. The boys’ books will now be sent off to be professionally published in an anthology and each of the students involved will all receive individual copies of their published narratives. In the next couple of weeks, the students will be reading their stories to the Year 1 students at Packmoor Primary and undertaking book review activities with them which are centred around their narratives. Their intention is to teach their younger peers about the importance of being eco-friendly and about how they can be more environmentally friendly themselves. We are very proud of the students who were involved in this project and we can’t wait to see the end product when they have been professionally published. Well done, boys!
