Pupils have literacy covered in pilot scheme

A pilot scheme aimed at helping children make the leap from primary to secondary school in March has been hailed a success.
The literacy project saw last year’s year 6 pupils from the town’s four primary schools create an array of work based around a book called Tuesday by David Weisner at the end of the summer term.
They then picked up on the work at the start of Year 7 at the Neale-Wade Academy and on Wednesday the students hosted the current Year 6 pupils at an event designed to show-off their creativity.
Pupils from all four primary schools visited the Neale-Wade to hear their predecessors talk about the work they have done as part of the project in a bid to inspire the younger children for a similar project later this year.
Hilary Coupland, the Neale-Wade’s transition co-ordinator, said the project was the first of its kind and had proved hugely successful, which is why they are repeating the experience again this school year.
