P5 Links Park Literacy Trail

During the P5 'Links Park Literacy Trail' participants visit the board room and take on the role of both the 'new signing' and the 'sports reporter' as they participate in our extremely popular 'Press Conference' workshop. Pitch-side, youngsters assume the role of the 'Match Commentator' - demonstrating enthusiasm and clear expression as they describe events on the field to the watching/listening audience. In addition to such activities, our 'Question of Sport' game show also provides a fun, challenging context for pupils to apply their observation, reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, as they also investigate the important role Literacy/Language plays in the everyday running of a Professional Football Club. 

I can communicate in a clear and expressive way... - LIT 2-10a / LIT 3-10a, Curriculum for Excellence
