Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
These foundation units are aimed at pupils working within Level 2 entry to Year 7. They are designed to remind pupils what they know and take them forward. The units also will teach phonics knowledge from consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) words to long vowel phonemes. The writing units focus on developing the following skills: understanding what a sentence is; extending sentences patterns using connectives; using adjectives and adverbs; planning endings of narratives which link to the openings; expanding points in narrative sentences to provide details; and understanding the various non-fiction text types. The reading unit focuses on non-fiction to support work done in the mainstream classroom while the handwriting unit ensures that pupils develop a more confident cursive script. Includes an explanation of running reading records and miscue analysis. (PM)
