International Literacy Day

Rainford High kick started the new academic term by celebrating International Literacy Day on the 8th September.

At lunch-time, the newly trained Year 8 librarians, supported by the school’s librarian, Mrs Relf and Associate Principal for Literacy, Mrs Wheelock, organised a range of literacy-based activities for all pupils to enjoy in the library. There was a punctuation treasure hunt which allowed pupils to more explore the range of resources available in the library, while also gaining a better understanding of key punctuation terms. Pupils were also keen to take part in interactive grammar games and congratulations is due to Dylan Langton (Year 7) who won the grammar quiz with 100%! However, the activity which generated most interest amongst pupils and staff was the inter-form spelling and grammar treasure hunt which took place in and around the library. The amount of entries and the accuracy of answers were astounding, with the winners not only correctly identifying the mistakes but also explaining why they were wrong. Congratulations are due to Rebecca Orme (Year 7), Olivia Spencer (Year 8), Josh Ashcroft (Year 10) and Holly Wilson (Year 11) who will be presented with their book of choice and certificate in assembly this week.
