Information on Literacy

We use literacy (Saesneg – English) every day when we’re speaking and listening and when we’re reading and writing.  Everyone needs to work on their literacy skills.


Here are some helpful websites to help skill you up!


We teach phonics and early reading skills through use of the Read, Write, Inc (RWI) approach. This learning begins in nursery. Please click on the link to find out more about RWI and how you can support this at home:

This is a great resource for literacy, ‘The Literacy Shed’!
