At Holly Lodge Girls’ College each Curriculum area has curated a selection of wider reading to support their Curriculum and to promote reading for information, pleasure and vocabulary expansion.
Reading in subject areas:
Disciplinary Literacy, which means the unique literacy requirements for each subject, is embedded across the school. Each subject has their own Steps to Success profile, which identifies the specific strategies to develop comprehension and vocabulary within each discipline. All departments include relevant tier 2 and tier 3 vocabulary as part of their curriculum planning and delivery.
Reading is a regular fixture for staff training sessions, and we outsource where needed. For example, staff all recently participated in a prosody training session with a view to develop our delivery, expression and widen our repertoire of reading strategies.
Each department has a designated literacy lead, who communicates regularly with the literacy co-ordinator. Between them, they ensure that reading remains a priority across all subjects, areas and share good practice and valuable ideas. Most recently, they have come up with our Books For Going Above and Beyond for GCSE.
