The "Oxford Literacy Web" is a literacy programme designed to guide schools successfully through the primary years. Fitting the requirements of the National Literacy Strategy, National Curriculum in England and Wales, English Language 5-14 in Scotland, and Common Curriculum in Northern Ireland, the Web guides pupils through the core skills associated with learning to read and write with a diverse range of literary styles within the genres of fiction, non-fiction, rhymes, language and poetry. The "Writing" workbooks meet the need for a greater focus on core writing skills, including planning and structure, and a range of essential sentence- and word-level skills, Each workbook is divided into two sections: non-fiction and fiction. Each section includes a model text; comprehension questions; text level work on structure; and sentence- and word-level work. There is practice on revising and editing text and two writing ideas, with planning and writing frames. Each workbook also has a revision/consolidation activity, and an extension activity for differentiation and an assessment chart.
The workbooks are suitable for: independent work; assessing children's progress; extra practice of core skills; and homework. They can be used alongside "Launch into Literacy" or as a stand-alone resource. The pack of six includes a four-page teaching notes booklet and the class pack of 30 includes five booklets.
