We hope you like the refreshed look of our Falkirk Children’s Services Literacy Blog?
Carol Turnbull, team manager with responsibility for literacy, Yvonne Manning, Yvonne McBlain and our new team of “Literacy Leaders” from every cluster, are also refreshing our Falkirk Children’s Services Literacy Strategy. The two Yvonnes are consulting with parents, partners and pupils across the authority to get their input into the strategy. Their task is to have the final document ready by January 2018.
Literacy Leaders adapted the initial draft strategy ideas prepared by the Yvonnes, and these are being developed as we speak. The document itself will be streamlined into a one-page poster with links to relevant key materials, and capable of being emailed and/or printed. There will also be a Falkirk Literacy Strategy OneNote document which can be accessed using your Glow login details. This will be used as a “One-Stop Shop” for depositing key literacy materials and documents. These resources will be complemented by this blog, where we will share news and developments, and examples of teaching and learning in literacy, languages and English. The literacy leads will use the blog to update us on the development of literacy work in each cluster too.
Watch this space for further developments, but if you’d like to know more, or if you can help make our new strategy even better, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org , email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org .
