Literacy

At Greenleaf, we believe that Literacy is the foundation for all learning; we want children to love reading and to enjoy speaking and listening, drama and writing.  Literacy is taught every day in mixed ability groups with an emphasis on reading for pleasure, reading for understanding and writing for a purpose.

     

Children have opportunities to present their work in class assemblies, in end-of-term productions, through "readers' theatre" and in written form, both in their books and for display.  To support children's understanding of texts and their writing, a range of drama is used including hot seating and freeze framing.

          

                                            

 

Literacy - Reading and Writing Genres

Click on the correct file for your child's year group for an overview of the reading and writing genres they will be studying this year.  Our Literacy is based around a whole text approach, studied in depth over several weeks.  This enables children to really develop a love of literature and allows time to explore different responses, eg. diaries, letters, etc.
