4. Literacy (L)

Literacy (L) skills will form a strong foundation for children’s school careers, and are split simply into:

  • Comprehension
  • Word Reading
  • Writing

With literacy, as a part of the EYFS seven areas of learning, children begin to build connections between spoken sounds and the letters in writing.

In order to achieve this, they’ll need to start forming levels of experience with letters and words, pictures and objects, and sounds.

Communicating through written language is an essential part for many areas of daily living.
