On this page you will find information about what Literacy looks like here at Sprowston Junior.

The 'Reading at Sprowston Junior School' and 'Spelling at Sprowston Junior School' documents below give a summary of reading and spelling in class and at home. They also highlight some of the ongoing assessments and interventions that are used to support learning.

We use ‘Power of Reading’ as a starting point for literacy planning as it provides rich vocabulary texts covering many genres, we adapt our planning and delivery to the meet the individual needs of learners.

The literacy long term plan document, shows how texts are organised within a year group and the main genres covered.  Theme and literacy coverage, demonstrates how we make appropriate cross curricular links. 

The progression documents illustrate the sequenced learning for all years in reading, writing, spelling, phonics and handwriting.
