Early Literacy Support: Top-Up Sessions. The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
These "Top-Up Sessions" are designed to provide support for children who have been included in England's Early Literacy Support (ELS) Programme and assessed through the ELS "Exit Strategy" and require some additional practice to consolidate skills and understanding. The objectives are the same as those for Weeks 9-12 (Sessions 41-60), using different texts as a focus to allow for the revising and application of skills and understanding in a new context. The arrangements for delivery of the sessions differ from the main ELS Intervention Programme. Twelve sessions are provided, to be run on the basis of three sessions per week for four weeks. Each week includes a Guided Reading session, a sentence level/high frequency word session and a Guided Writing session. The sequence of each"Top-Up" session is the same as that of the main ELS sessions. A brief overview of the "Top-Up" sessions is provided before the 4-week sessions are delineated. (NKA)
