Writing

Literacy and Language

Literacy and Language is a complete literacy programme for fluent readers – all children in Years 2 to Year 6 read, write and discuss texts with maturity.  The programme is totally aligned to the new National Curriculum in a fun and meaningful way.  (View the curriculum matching grids)

Literacy and Language:

  • Gives every child a deep understanding of what they read using complete texts by leading authors and introduced through the special ‘three-step’ approach.
  • Fully prepares every child for writing using a planning, drafting and revising method.
  • Teaches grammar in context so that children can apply it with understanding seamlessly in their own writing.
  • Supports the grammar and punctuation aspects of the Key Stage 1 and 2 tests.
  • Includes practice tests to build confidence prior to statutory assessment.
  • Our literacy and language program develops children into articulate speakers where children reason and justify their answers and learn how to present and debate.
  • We also engage children with drama and discussion: our children write confidently because they have something to say.
  • Literacy and Language children write confidently and enthusiastically because they have a purpose and audience for their writing.
  • Our children are given strategies to ask and answer questions.
  • We fully demonstrate writing to our children and show them how plan, draft and edit their written work.
  • We work collaboratively, using partner work to build resilient learners who enjoy being challenged.
  • We strive to create a love of literacy in our pupils.
  • And they love reading for pleasure – the biggest indicator of success.
