We have gathered together resources we think will help parents/carers familiarise themselves with the tools being used to deliver and support remote learning to our young people.

Literacy across Learning

What is literacy?

Curriculum for Excellence gives a new focus to literacy across learning. Literacy has been defined within Curriculum for Excellence as 'the set of skills which allows an individual to engage fully in society and in learning, through the different forms of language, and the range of texts, which society values and finds useful' (Principles and practice: Literacy across learning, 2009). This is a broader definition than one that just focuses on the ability to read and write.

The literacy framework has three elements:

• listening and talking

• reading

• writing.

Literacy skills will be developed in all subjects and across the eight curriculum areas – Expressive arts, Health and wellbeing, Languages, Mathematics, Religious and moral education, Sciences, Social studies and Technologies – not only in early years settings, language classes in primary schools or English and Gàidhlig classes in secondary schools and colleges.
