Comic-strip books are often a popular choice by struggling readers, but don’t assume that these texts are always easy to read. Sometimes, the text is written in capital letters and that can present a challenge to the struggling reader. Also, pupils (and adults!) can be uncertain about what to read first – the text above or below the artwork, or what is written in the speech bubbles.
Following requests from a number of schools for rectangular book sticker templates, we are pleased to let you know that these have now been created and are available for you to download from your user account on the Catch Up® website.
We’ve recently been working on an update to our Numeracy Digital Games, and we’re delighted that they’re now available in the logged-in area of our website, via the Progress Reporting Tool.
The Numeracy Digital Games are a complement to the Catch Up® Numeracy intervention, and can be played an unlimited number of times by pupils – on their smartphones, tablets and computers!
This is my first blog for Catch Up®, since officially joining the organisation on 1st September 2017.
I feel very privileged to be receiving the Catch Up® baton from Julie, and hope that I will lead the organisation continually forward, as we work hard to address literacy and numeracy difficulties that contribute to underachievement.
Hello (and Goodbye!)
Yes, this is my first blog for Catch Up® and… it will also be my last!
Why? Because I’m retiring as Director of Catch Up® after 17 years. You might think I could have got round to writing a blog before now, but I’ve been busy working with the Catch Up® team on other tasks and I leave blog writing to my excellent blog-writing team.
Catch Up® is the working name of The Caxton Trust, a not-for-profit charity registered in England and Wales (1072425) and Scotland (SC047557) as well as a company limited by guarantee (03476510).
