We are developing our literacy skills through using the book corner  within our classroom, there is also lots of opportuinites to write, read and spot sounds that we recognise throughout the continous provision inside and outside. Literacy is taught through phonics, text detectives, colourful semantics, handwriting and storytime. 

Word Reading

  • I can say a sound for each letter in the alphabet and at least 10 diagraphs 
  • I can read words consistent with their phonic knowledge by sound-blending
  • I can read aloud simple sentences and books that are consistent with their phonic knowledge including some common exception words 


  • I can demonstrate my understanding of what has been read to me by retelling stories and narratives using my own words and recently introduced vocabulary
  • I can anticipate key events in stories
  • I can use and understand recently introduced vocabulary during discussions about stories, non-fiction books, rhymes, poems and role play.  


  • I can write recognisable letters, most of which are correctly formed
  • I can spell words by identifying sounds in them and representing the sounds with a letter or letters
  • I can write simple phrases and sentences that can be read to others.
