Another great few weeks in Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan.

Last week we celebrated 'World Book Day'.  Learners were swopping books in the library and it was great to see the library so full and learners all talking about reading and books.  We really are starting to see a great culture of literacy across the school. 

Learners in Year 9 and 10 have had their creative writing published after entering a national writing competition Mini MonologuesWord Weavers. Each learner wrote from the point of view of someone who inspires or intrigues them. Many based their writing on the character Shelter from ‘Stone Cold’ by Robert Swindells after studying the text in their English lessons. The pupils were encouraged to develop their writing talent by reflecting upon their enjoyment of reading the novel.

Tomorrow (Monday 9th March 2015), we have a special visitor who will help develop our literacy still further.  We also have an enrichment day on Thursday.  Some great extended learning opportunities for each year group.  I look forward to sharing the work with you.

This week we have been celebrating the learners achievement in gaining VIVO points.  This is our new rewards system to ensure that learners who do what is expected of them each and every day are rewarded.
