Highland Literacy

Highland Literacy is the name of the approach which we base our reading lessons on. Below we have attached a short presentation which explains the structure of the Highland Literacy Project (you will need to pause the video to read all the information on certain slides).

Across the country, it has proven to be an effective way to get children not only to enjoy reading, but also to understand what they are reading.

To help with some of the terminology and ways to get your child reading, please see our attached leaflets.
