The Multimodal literacy project: supporting looked after children

Petula Bhojwani,Liz Kitts

A project in Nottinghamshire has for some time supported home-school links for families caring for looked after children. Each child is given a multimodal kit with carefully selected resources and suggested activities to take home in the autumn term and to keep regardless of change in school or home setting. Carers are given support to help them encourage the children to create their own multimodal books and presentations.Thanks to The English Association for allowing UKLA to reproduce the article.
