Literacy

Literacy is one of the seven areas of development that we focus on in Early Years at BSN.

Reading

Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.

Writing

Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways that match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences that can be read by themselves and others.
