Headteacher: Mr P Cowley


Literacy development involves encouraging children to read and write, both through
listening to others reading, and being encouraged to begin to read and write themselves.
Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials – for example books,
poems, and other materials to ignite their interest.


ELG 09 Reading: Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic
knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also
read some common irregular words. They demonstrate an understanding when
talking with others about what they have read.
ELG 10 Writing: Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which
match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words.
They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some
words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.
