Literacy in EYFS

This area has three goals:

  • Comprehension
  • Word Reading
  • Writing


This area focuses on children becoming readers and writers. An interest in a wide range of books is encouraged through sharing books, ‘big book’ sessions and our class libraries. Children develop their ability to recognise letter sounds through the ‘Read Write Inc’ Systematic synthetic phonics program and go onto blend for reading and segment sounds for writing words. Children learn how to form letters to begin to write short words and eventually sentences with finger spaces and punctuation.
