Literacy incorporates the key areas of Reading, Writing and Talking & Listening. At Lisanally communication takes many forms. Our pupils are encouraged to express themselves and their needs verbally, using Makaton signs, augmentative communication devices, PECs and communication mats to name but a few. We love to have story time and to share our news during Roll Call. Every class has access to a wide variety of books from our school library to include sensory stories, story sacks and audio books.
Literacy is celebrated at various times throughout the year with Literacy week and World Book Day. This year these events begin on 1st March and offer a lovely opportunity to have fun whilst embracing an important part of the curriculum. The following is a selection of Literacy based activities throughout the school.
