Below is a virtual copy of a Tutor Booklet your child will receive in the post to complete over the summer. This booklet allows your child to detail any worries they may have but also to include personal details which will allow their tutors to get to know them in the new term.
Please bring this into school on the first day.
Below you will find a series of videos giving tasters into a variety of Brooke Weston lessons. These sessions are no more than 30-40 minutes and your child can access them as and when they choose to do so. There is no pressure to complete them all or to do them within a strict time line.
At Brooke Weston we know that having a broad and rich vocabulary will lead to success. Research has shown a direct link between academic success and prosperous careers, and those who have a working expansive vocabulary. We also know that this same breadth of vocabulary can underpin students' confidence and their ability to be articulate - both essential life skills.
Below you will find a literacy booklet that we hope you will encourage your child to complete over the summer. It entails a literacy bingo and a ‘best piece of writing’ structure, please ensure your child brings this will them in September.
This will be uploaded on the 16th July 2021.
