Literacy Curriculum

Subject Leader - Mrs J Wells

'Literacy' is an umbrella term which refers to the teaching of reading, writing, spelling, handwriting and speaking and listening. When children first start learning to read and write, we use phonics (we follow Letters and Sounds) to teach them the phonemes they need to do this. Children are taught reading on a daily basis- we use the carousel method of teaching in EYFS and Key Stage 1 and follow the whole class approach in all Key Stage 2 classes. This ensures that all children access a text that is age appropriate and challenges them. We ask that parents support their children in developing their skills as a reader by listening to them read at least five times per week. 

In writing, we use Talk for Writing to introduce children to new text types and to further develop their language. Alongside this,teachers plan in opportunities for book talk and drama activities to deepen children's understanding of a text. Each class have at least two words of the week to support them in developing their vocabulary.
