Literacy and Language is a complete Literacy programme taught for an hour a day. It is rooted in the new National Curriculum for children in Years 3 – 6 who can already decode text fluently. It develops children’s comprehension, vocabulary, writing, critical thinking and discussion skills. The programme provides teachers with explicit guidance in how to teach grammar – in a fun and meaningful way. It also provides high quality and engaging texts both on-screen and in books for the children to use. 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:
- enjoy powerful complete stories, poems and plays by authors both
- teachers and children love – including Michael Morpurgo, Jamila Gavin, Carol-Ann Duffy, Ted Hughes, Geraldine McCaughrean and Jeremy Stronglearn how to get to the heart of a story or the nub of a non-fictiontext
- learn to identify themes and ask universal questions.
