Eleven year-old children who read, write and speak to a very high standard love school, love learning and are likely to achieve extremely well at secondary school.
Literacy and Language gives teachers the tools to make this happen for every child.
It is a complete literacy programme rooted in the new national curriculum for children in Years 2 – 6 who can decode fluently. It develops children’s comprehension, vocabulary, writing, critical thinking and discussion skills and provides teachers with explicit guidance in how to teach grammar – in a fun and meaningful way.
Children learn what it is to be a real reader and to truly engage in the world of books.
They will have the opportunity to:
learn to identify themes and ask universal questions.
Teachers report that the impact of Literacy and Language on writing is huge:
‘Big Questions’ promote deeper thinking about the more abstract questions that arise from the fiction and provide a link with the non-fiction
implicit teaching of grammar for reading drives the explicit teaching of grammar for writing.
Literacy and Language children write confidently and enthusiastically because they have something to say. And they love reading at home – the biggest indicator of success.
