Literacy

Aspects of literacy includes; reading and writing.

During regular adult-led literacy sessions, children work in small groups and as a whole class.  Continuous provision for enhanced learning is accessible during child-initiated sessions.

Both adult led activities and continuous provision enable children to develop skills to begin to;

  • read and understand simple sentences by using phonic knowledge to decode regular words, and read irregular words by sight;
  • understand and talk about what they have read;
  • use their phonic knowledge to write words;
  • write some irregular common words;
  • write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others.
