Supporter 2 Reporter
Supporter 2 Reporter (S2R) is a programme where pupils improve their literacy skills by taking on the professional role of a sports reporter. The unique mix of sport and media engages learners to develop their media, enterprise and communication skills over a comprehensive 20 hour programme. It is aimed at children and young people from years 5 to 8.
Learners take part in a project based learning model to learn journalistic skills. S2R has a clear focus on communication, media and literacy. It also has the added benefit of raising self-esteem, motivation and confidence for targeted learners, as well as widening educational opportunities.
Scunthorpe United Reading Stars
Scunthorpe United Reading Stars is a programme that links literacy to football. The project has a number of strands, all of which are intended to harness children’s passion for football to improve attainment in reading.
The strands currently provided as part of the programme include:
access to the National Literacy Trust’s Premier Reading Stars challenge
two half day visits to Glanford Park (home of Scunthorpe United) for a group to take part in football themed activity lessons, for example the creation of TV shows, performance poetry or comic strip creation, as well as a number of additional reading challenges, activities and visits from SUFC players
The Reading Stars project is flexible enough to be used in both primary and secondary settings and works well for participants from years 5, 6, 7 and 8. The programme helps to make positive steps in transforming attitudes to literacy by inspiring love of reading through a passion for sport.
Reaching for Success
Reaching for Success (RfS) is an alternative education programme aimed at re-engaging students in their learning using the stimulating and exciting environment of a sports venue.
Our core re-engagement offer supports learners at Key Stages 3 and 4. It helps learners work towards achieving agreed educational and life skill targets. As part of this process, accredited and structured non-accredited courses (based on their own interests) will be used to work towards literacy, numeracy, ICT and life skills goals.
Learners can access half daily sessions at the study centre as part of an agreed alternative timetable supporting their personalised learning needs.
