Encouraging children to develop language skills, read, and enjoy books at an early age is vital – and the earlier the better. In Highland the development of the Words Up Key Messages and Emerging Literacy support early literacy, language and communication development.
The Care Inspectorate have released new guidance for developing literacy, language and communication skills – ‘Getting Ready to Read‘ which support Early Learning and Childcare environments. This is a useful document for practitioners across the Early Level.
The information integrates the principles of the Words Up Key Messages and Emerging Literacy guidance. Between now and the Summer training will be available for EYPs, P1 Teachers, ASN Teachers and SMT on taking a developmental approach through Words Up and Emerging Literacy. Further information will be shared on the blog and the CPD Calendar in due course.
