At Kingsley, we believe that language and literacy is fundamental to the overall development of children and their access to the curriculum in all its aspects. In the society in which we live, an ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, and to read a wide range of texts is essential if children are to achieve their potential throughout their school days and into their adult life.
The fundamental areas of Literacy are:
* Speaking and listening
* Grammar and punctuation
These skills are applied and embedded across a broad and balanced curriculum.
At Kingsley we use the following schemes to aid reading
*Letters and Sounds
*Oxford Reading Tree books- fiction, non-fiction and traditional tales
*Banded free choice reading
Interventions are in place for children who are struggling with phonic development/reading.
How can you help your child?
* Practise reading their book each night
* Practise differentiated weekly spellings with your child.
