And as for the teachers? Well… they have been great. Initial responses were, on the whole, positive and supportive.  Yes, some niggles – definitely aspects that could benefit from some tweaks and changes for the future – and the main change being an extension to the original timeframe, moving from one to two weeks.


Peer collaboration (pupil and teachers!)
Quality and variety of form of responses
Strengths & Weaknesses/subject bias

And everyone is taking about Literacy!

I now have to collate, short-list and grade the competition winners.  More important is that we now have attempted to create a holistic view of all S1 writing ability which will now be assessed by non-English teachers, and form a folio of work that should be a baseline from which all Literacy teachers should now consider in advancing the literacy development of their House Class pupils in addition to their own subject S1 pupils.
