The Oxford Literacy Web is an exciting new 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 Oxford Literacy 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 "Letters, Sounds, and Rhymes" strand is a unique programme, developing phonological awareness and phonics knowledge throughout the infant years. Following on from Rhyming Stories stages 1-3, these books help to develop children's phonic knowledge, especially their ability to discriminate, spell, and read vowel phonemes (oo, ar, oy, ow, oi, ou). They cover the work stipulated for Year 1 (Primary 2) term 3 and Year 2 (Primary 3) terms 1, 2, and 3 in the National Literacy Strategy. the accompanying big books are ideal for shared/class reading. Each book provides a lively storyline with lots of humour and a mixture of traditional and original stories.
Beautiful four colour artwork strongly cues and supports the text for early readers. The target age range is 6-7 year olds.
