Literacy (Specific)

Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.


Examples within the Foundation Stage setting include:

Topic based learning around key children’s texts

Promoting writing through the provisions within the environment

Shared stories and guided reading
