Literacy Development link with Poland

We were delighted to welcome Dr Marta Lockiewicz and Mrs Martyna Jaskulska  from the University of Gdansk in Poland to school in the week following the February half-term.

Owing to the mutual collaboration with Professor Angela Fawcett from the University of Wales, they had been awarded a grant from the National Centre for Science in Poland to undertake research in literacy development. Dr Lockiewicz and Mrs Jaskulska elected to work with Sheffield’s Birkdale School as part of the project.  A number of  pupils from S2 – S5 (Y8 – Y11) enjoyed taking part in various literacy activities with them. Mrs Anne Shipton, Head of Learning Support, is looking forward to leading a return trip to Poland in the summer term 2016 to further this prestigious relationship.
