Making a Difference – Dictionaries 4 Life

One person in six in the UK lives with poor literacy. This holds them back at every stage of their life. As a child they won’t be able to succeed at school, as a young adult they will be locked out of the job market, and on becoming a parent they won’t be able to support their child’s learning.

The promotion of literacy is a special focus for the Rotary movement and as part of our commitment President Roger and other members of the Club have been making end of term visits to a number of local schools to present Year 6 graduating classes with Rotary Dictionaries 4 Life to support their future learning.

By using dictionaries efficiently children can explore spellings, meanings and derivations helping them to develop autonomy and confidence — one of the core goals of education.
