Hour is divided up into four sections:

Visit our Literacy
and our Teacher
- The lesson starts with the whole
class working on a shared text where
the teacher is able to model effective reading or writing and where
all pupils can actively participate.
- Then comes a short period of word
level or sentence level work.
The focus of this part of the lesson is to teach and consolidate
phonic knowledge which the children can then apply in their reading
and writing or on spelling or sentence construction.
- Twenty minutes of the lesson is for independent
work where pupils apply their
literacy skills in meaningful tasks individually, in pairs or in
groups. The teacher works with small groups to improve specific
skills through guided reading or writing.
- The final 10 minutes of the lesson
is the plenary
session which allows teachers
and children to reflect on and assess what has been learnt and
to think about how to develop what they have learnt further.
