Literacy Days at the NNAB

We organised two Literacy Days in February for our students. The Key Stage 2 day was February 11th and the Key Stage 3 one was on the 25th. Our aim was to build their confidence in speaking skills as well as develop their creativity with words. Our data showed that in the past, Literacy is an area that can be challenging for young people with visual needs to excel at. While the young people took part in a variety of Literacy-based workshops with three enthusiastic volunteers from the Writers Centre in Norwich, the learning support assistants had training on the use of IT, braille and reading resources. They also shared their experiences of working closely with a child/young person with visual impairment. The lunch was a do-it-yourself sandwich for the youngsters who socialised over their meal, and the days ended with a presentation of the poetry written during the day. The feedback from students and LSA's alike was very positive and we plan to arrange similar events like this in the future.
