Summer Reading Letter

July 2019


Dear Parent/Carer

We are delighted to let you know that on Founders’ Day, all students were given a summer reading pack to support reading for pleasure over the holiday. Students been given information about this during their assemblies this half term and will be reminded about the project as part of the Founders’ Day celebrations.

Each pack will contain a text and a vocabulary list that has been designed specifically for each year group and will correspond to their learning September onwards, across all of their subjects. Each vocabulary list includes a range of suggested activities for students to complete to help them to learn the words in preparation for September.

The text students will receive will depend on their year group:

Year 7: My Sister Who Lives on the Mantelpiece by

Year 8: The Book Thief by Markus Zusack

Year 10 and 11 students will receive an anthology of articles, this will include:

‘In modern Britain, hunger has become normal. That is an outrage.’

‘About the boys: Tim Winton on how toxic masculinity is shackling men to misogyny.’

‘The Power of Altruism.’

‘The Other Side of “Broken Windows.’

‘What Happened When I Met My Islamophobic Troll.’

Each text has been carefully chosen to challenge students and to emphasis three key values that we would like students to consider over the holiday:

Taking responsibility and understanding that we all play a part within a bigger structure.

Demonstrating kindness and compassion.

Seeking to further understand those who we view as to different to ourselves.

We are thrilled to be able to offer students this opportunity and greatly appreciate your support in encouraging your child to engage with the materials over the summer.

Yours faithfully,

Miss N. Jones

Head of English

Dear Parents/Carers,

At Lymm High School we place a huge importance on the role of physical education and school sport for girls, not only for its educational value, but as a vehicle for improving health, participation and performance. We also recognise the national initiatives that are currently campaigning to get more girls to become, and remain, active.

We are delighted to share our first edition of ‘LHS Women in Sport’, a physical education supplement dedicated to celebrating the success of our young female sportswomen.

We hope you enjoy reading about some of our incredible athletes,and about the profoundly positive impact of physical activity at Lymm High School.
