B1 - development of literacy skills

How children develop reading skills:

  • it is important to harness childrens curiosity and encourage them to develop their interest through valuing books and enjoying reading in a supportive environment
  • many children will have been given or shown books from a very early ag, this means they will have started to build up their pre-reading skills
  • may have also had experiences of nursery rhymes and songs so will be able to recognise patterns in words and predict what comes next.
  • childrens should be read to as much as possible
  • given plenty of opportunities for speaking and listening through talking about books.

How adults support children's skills in reading and writing:

  • links between spoken sounds, letters and symbols - looking at shapes of letters whilst adults sound them out ,
