Unit 311 Support Literacy Development

1.1
Literacy is fundamental to all areas of learning from an early age, as it unlocks access to the wider curriculum. Being literate increases opportunities for pupils in all aspects of life and lays the foundations for lifelong learning and work.
Competence and confidence in literacy, including competence in the three major areas, reading, writing, speaking and listening, are essential for progress in all areas of the curriculum. To broaden and enhance children’s literacy skills, opportunities need to be given by providing them with a wide range of different contexts in which to use and practice there skills. With reference to the aims of the Primary Framework for Literacy ‘To support and increase all children’s access to excellent teaching, leading to exciting and successful learning.’
It gives structure on how literacy is taught in primary schools and provides suggestions on how this can be delivered to the pupils.
I work as a Teaching Assistant in a primary school Key stage 2 Year 3 of the National Curriculum. A typical literacy lesson is delivered by firstly, by the class teacher talking and explaining to the pupils the chosen literacy subject. Group discussions or whole class participation, sharing thoughts and ideas. Then focusing on the learning objective in either talk partners, groups or as individuals. Pupils with communication difficulties, special educational needs or have English as a second language, are supported in small groups or on a one-to-one basis. Usually nearing the end of the lesson, we will revert back to whole class discussion again sharing their thoughts on what they have learnt. This is also an opportunity for peer assessment and self assessment.
