A Hub and Heartbeat of the School

A Hub and Heartbeat of the School
Our Learning Resource Centre (LRC) continues to be an important hub of the school. Before school and at break time and lunchtime students can access all the books and state of the art computers and after school our popular homework club continues to run for those students who want to get ahead with their home learning before they go home.
The classrooms around the LRC (LRC1, 3 and 4) are usually filled with students working hard in their English lessons, engaging with challenging and thought provoking texts or making progress on one of the many online learning platforms (like Bedrock Vocabulary) designed to drive up literacy skills so useful to all students across our eclectic curriculum.
On Wednesday of this week in CDC time it was great to see Year 9 students in LRC3 looking at their exciting next steps related to their all-important option choices they will be making for next year as they embark on the Key Stage 4 aspect of their journey through Bushey Meads.
During lesson 1, Year 8 students were reading quietly at the start of the dedicated reading lesson in LRC2 – in a lesson that is timetabled once a week for all Year 7 and 8 students to underpin the importance of reading, developing great literacy skills and reinforcing the importance of daily reading habits that support superb achievement.
As parents and carers, do encourage your children to read each and every day and develop that lifelong passion for reading that is such a hugely important lifeskill to have.
