Supporting Literacy at home 

One of our key priorities at LSA is to develop oracy and communication so that our children are articulate and able to speak and write with confidence and accuracy in every area of the curriculum. 
Supporting your child at home is one of the most important things you can do to help develop their literacy skills.
We firmly believe that a collaborative approach to supporting literacy will enable our pupils to succeed in every subject at LSA and become confident, independent young people.


Developing an Academic Vocabulary

Using and understanding new words gives children confidence and improves their ability to succeed at school. The following is a list of words that we would like your child to work through and understand.

We would like to ask for your support in helping to build your child’s literacy skills. We will publish a set of words each half-term that we believe will help to build your child’s vocabulary and support them to develop their writing skills.

Building your child’s literacy skills

Please would you go through these words and help your child to use them in context.
