Literacy & Language

At Prescot Primary, we follow on from Read Write Inc with the linked 'Literacy & Language' programme. Our children love it's pace, it's focus on learning and using new words - and of course, it's engaging texts.

Read Write Inc. Literacy and Language is a complete literacy programme for fluent readers - all children in Years 2 to Year 6 read, write and discuss texts with maturity. The programme is totally aligned to the new National Curriculum in a fun and meaningful way.  View curriculum matching grids

Literacy and Language:

  • Gives every child a deep understanding of what they read using the special 'three reads' approach
  • Fully prepares every child for writing using a planning, drafting and revising method
  • Teaches grammar in context so that children can apply it seamlessly in their own writing
  • Supports the grammar and punctuation aspects of the Key Stage 1 and 2 tests 
  • Includes practice tests to build confidence prior to statutory assessment
  • Creates articulate speakers where children justify their answers and learn how to debate.

Literacy and Language children write confidently and enthusiastically because they have something to say. And they love reading at home – the biggest indicator of success.

Teachers report that the impact of Literacy and Language on childrens' learning is huge. Watch Literacy and Language in action.
