Staff used the final session of Drive to Fly (part of our CPD staff programme) to reflect on the reading focus for this year and various reading strategies that have been discussed.
Each department was taught two lessons from other subjects which were created for
KS3/4 to bring fiction reading into all subjects. We tried to ensure that each
department had subjects that were quite different to their own in order to
bring variety to the sessions.
English saw two incredible reading lessons from Science and Geography, Humanities were immersed in MFL and P.E., Science partook in some Citizenship and D.T. etc. Teachers were engaged and thoroughly enjoyed the sessions – learning about other subjects as well as gaining new techniques around reading that they could bring into their future lessons.
Feedback was shared at the end of each mini lesson, which departments can bring forward
into their future planning.
