POLAAR – Emerging Literacy

polaarboy260_tcm4-832232Following our post last month on Emerging Literacy many practitioners have accessed and engaged with the materials which we published in August.

To support your engagement with the Primary One Literacy Assessment and Action Resource (POLAAR) the Millburn Academy ASG has created a streamlined checklist for the Early Literacy Environmental Assessment.

We are looking to collect data from Primary 1 teachers across the Authority on the number of aspects which have been embedded from the Early Literacy Environmental Assessment. The Emerging Literacy working group are interested in which aspects are difficult to embed to identify the further support materials which are needed.

We would appreciate if Primary 1 practitioners could complete the checklist by the October break and send to highlandliteracy@gmail.com by the October break.

For anyone in the South/Mid area who missed the initial training, you can apply through the CPD calendar for twilight training at Crown Primary School, Inverness on Tuesday 27th October, 4pm – 6pm. Further training needs will be identified at the Emerging Literacy group’s next meeting in October.
