A Developmental Approach to Teaching Literacy

Seven members of the Hanover Street School team attended a training after school this week.  It was to learn about simple and informal assessment in the infant stages, which support effective learning and teaching.

We increased our awareness of:

  • phonological awareness (how to tell when children are ready for learning phonics and how to develop this)
  • pencil control and early handwriting
  • scissor skills

Look out for parents workshops, etc, coming soon.
