Emerging Literacy Around Highland Council

Elaine Mead, Chief Executive of the NHS, visited two of our Primary Schools last week to look at Emerging Literacy in practice. During her visit to Crown Primary School and Hilton Primary School, both in Inverness, Elaine learned how both of the schools have used the Developmental Continua, taking a developmental approach to literacy.

She loved seeing how the staff had used the Phonological Awareness and the Pre-Handwriting resources in the classroom. It was great to hear that through the work between Education and Allied Health Professionals within Care and Learning, children’s progress in Literacy is being identified and nurtured through the use of the Emerging Literacy training and materials.

It was great to see the independent engagement of the children with the tasks which were set during the visit. The personal favourites were the Phonic Phone which allowed learners to hear the phonemes and the scissor tasks which developed scissor skills.
