Literacy Skills

As language is embedded across all curricular subjects, early intervention of children’s literacy skills is of the utmost importance.

St Pat’s therefore places great emphasis on boosting our children’s literacy levels and skills. It is a skill which is vital to ensuring a successful future and access to their choice of career for all our children.

Through the use of modelled reading, shared reading, station teaching, Literacy Hour, Buddy Reading, in class support and withdrawal, children’s reading levels improve vastly once they begin in St Pat’s.

The children in St. Pat’s are provided with reading material at their individual ability levels and supported in every area of literacy such as phonics, fluency, word attack, writing, oral language etc.
