Thanks to Mrs Lindblad (teacher at Alsager Highfields) and her daughter Olivia, who is studying A level English language at Alsager School, a very exciting and heart-warming piece of research is being conducted. A level language students, who are studying children’s writing progression and development as part of their course, were comparing pieces of work written by children from Alsager Highfields. The 6th formers were analysing the writing skills of children at the start and end of all year groups in primary school, from Reception up to Year 6. It was fascinating and hugely beneficial for the A Level students and their teacher Mrs Martin. It is lovely to think of the children at Highfields helping their much older peers with their studies and a great example of schools in the same Trust working together for the benefit of all.
Many thanks to all involved.
