Reading and Extended Writing

Extended writing and reading is a key part of daily life for our students at Roding Valley High School. As we value high level reading and writing skills, our students participate in initiatives at a whole school level to encourage a passion for literacy. At key stage 3 level, students participate in ‘Drop Everything And Read’ everyday for twenty minutes. Students access reading materials from our library and aim to read as many books, from as many genres as possible. Alongside this, students participate in ‘Drop Everything And Write’, whereby students write solidly for 20 minutes linked to the themes of our ‘Character and Culture’ programme. This gives our students the resilience needed to be successful at KS4, KS5 and beyond.
