The Phantom Tollbooth – community literacy project

nicola stephenson

Over the past 2 years the Archer Academy and partner primary schools have worked collaboratively on a Community Literacy Project to support the transition from Year 6 to Year 7.  It has quickly become a firm tradition across the schools and enables a shared and common experience for all students.

This year, we asked some famous faces, as well as Archer teachers, to get involved and each read a chapter of the story, Jackanory style, to the year 6 students involved. We are so grateful to everyone who has volunteered to take part, a particular thank you goes to actors: Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith, Katherine Parkinson, Nicola Stephenson, Ralf Little and well-being expert and author Katia Narain Phillips.

The videos and resource guide are now available on our website and all Year 6 children are welcome to join us on Milo’s adventures.
