Guidance for Year 6 Pupils. 2001 Revision. The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
England's National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies are designed to raise standards for all pupils. Though the skills they address are basic and need to be built up throughout the primary years, at the early stage of implementing the strategies, many older pupils will not have reached the standards expected of Year 6 pupils in future years. This booklet is aimed at teachers of these pupils. The booklet may be used to support planning for literacy hours and mathematics lessons. It is also intended to support planning for additional teaching outside these times, including out of school hours activities. In addition, the booklet discusses boys' attainment in literacy; includes a summary of key objectives from the Framework for Teaching; and explains preparation for the Key Stage 2 English tests. (PM)
