Literacy in a New Entrant Setting
Developing early literacy skills: a focus on speaking, listening, questioning and the beginnings of writing
This course will explore:

  • what emergent/early literacy looks like, sounds like, feels like

  • a holistic approach to language development and how this begins before children have started school

  • making links between ECE and the new entrant setting

  • concepts about print and the value of sharing books

  • the importance of daily oral language opportunities, sensory experiences and play

  • effective ways of developing our children’s speaking, listening, thinking and questioning skills

  • how to develop literacy skills through an integrated, cross curricular, thematic and real- life approach: practical links between literacy and topic/inquiry/science, literacy and maths, literacy and the arts (role play, movement, visual arts)

  • the importance of foundation skills: memory, visual, auditory, gross motor and fine motor skills and continuing to build on these skills whilst delivering the primary school curriculum

  • sharing ideas for children’s writing and spelling experiences and different approaches we may have

  • using the Literacy Progressions documents and the Supporting English Language Learning in Primary Schools (SELLIPS), plus other useful resources and further reading

  • visual resources, props and useful websites
