Working with the World Literacy Foundation

Our Schools pack, which was free to download from our social media feeds, was trialled in a Year 5 and Year 1 class on International Literacy Day at Whitefield Primary School in Liverpool, which has been awarded ‘Reading Recovery School of the Year’ three years running. 23 different languages are spoken at this school and its pupils come from a range of countries, including Syria, Pakistan and Italy.

Head teacher Nadine Carroll commented: “We are really excited that we are the first school in the UK to trial the new learning materials created by Hallmark and the World Literacy Foundation for International Literacy Day, as we believe writing and reading for a purpose is the most effective way to develop literacy. Providing opportunities for our pupils to write cards to each other, to celebrities and even their favourite superhero is a fun and engaging way to develop their reading and writing skills.”
