Characters Come to Life on World Book Day
Students and staff at Looe Community Academy were immersed in a literary celebration on World Book Day. Extracts of perfect prose from carefully crafted stories written by our youngest students were vocally articulated with passion and expression by eager students during a special whole school assembly.

As part of its whole school literacy programme, the Academy has developed an ethos that ensures every teacher is a teacher of English, with attention to spelling, punctuation and grammar being given the same importance in every subject area.
