I ran a two-day Literacy Event at The Mirus Academy in Walsall last week. Each day I had groups of Year 7 and 8 pupils developing their reading and writing abilities in a fun, competitive environment.
As usual, I had fantastic support from the local business community.
Day 1: David Tomalin – Age UK Jacqui Pountney MBE – WES Helen Gelsthorpe-Smith – Henn and Westwood
Day 2: David Tomalin- Age UK Louise Taylor and Nicola Delahey- Juniper Training Craig Vincent- Local Entrepreneur
My aim was to get the young people to read a quality newspaper and present a story they liked. I have to say they did a great job and chose some great stories, some of which I hadn’t seen.
A superb day with a group of lovely young people.
