Aspects of literacy includes; Comprehension, Word Reading and Writing.
During regular adult-led phonics and 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;
- Demonstrate understanding of what has been read to them by retelling stories and narratives using their own words and recently introduced vocabulary.
- Anticipate – where appropriate – key events in stories.
- Use and understand recently introduced vocabulary during discussions about stories, non-fiction, rhymes and poems and during role-play.
- Say a sound for each letter in the alphabet and at least 10 diagraphs.
- Read words consistent with their phonic knowledge by sound-blending.
- Read aloud simple sentences and books that are consistent with their phonic knowledge, including some common exception words.
- Write recognisable letters, most of which are correctly formed.
- Spell words by identifying sounds in them and representing the sounds with a letter or letters.
- Write simple phrases and sentences that can be read by others.
