Welcome back and I hope everyone had a well-deserved rest over the summer holidays. Monday 13th August saw a really well attended in-service day for P1 practitioners in which the expectations for literacy and numeracy in P1 were explored. The current P1 literacy guidance, its accompanying teachers’ toolkit (almost completed) and resources to support all elements of the document can be found under the drop down menu, The early acquisition of literacy. Many thanks to everyone who came for the positive feedback and for your contributions on the day. I hope the start of term goes well for you all.
