Literacy is the ability to read, write, speak and listen in a way that allows you to communicate effectively.


At Kelmscott School, we realise the importance of our students having good literacy skills. This can enable students in the future to have higher self-esteem, better health and great jobs.


We ask our students at Kelmscott to read independently every evening for 20 minutes to ensure they maintain and improve their vocabulary skills and develop a greater understanding of the written word.


Our school has an outstanding library which contains an exciting range of reading books available for our students to borrow. The library is a meeting point for students to read during break times or to take part in the organised activities such as: competitions, book clubs and quizzes. 


Have a look through your Kelmscott Wonder summer challenge below. We hope you have fun reading the book and  completing the booklet tasks.

“I read for pleasure and that is the moment I learn the most.” Margaret Atwood
