The Oxford Literacy Web is an exciting new literacy programme designed to guide schools successfully through the primary years. Fitting the requirements of the National Literacy Strategy, National Curriculum in England and Wales, English Language 5-14 in Scotland, and Common Curriculum in Northern Ireland, the Oxford Literacy Web guides pupils through the core skills associated with learning to read and write with a diverse range of literary styles within the genres of fiction, non-fiction, rhymes, language, and poetry. The "Poetry" strand covers all the NLS reception and Year 1 requirements with strong rhyme patterns, chants and action verse, and predictable structures. The poems, from Britain and world-wide, both humorous and serious, are chosen for poetic quality and depth as well as readability, making them suitable for language study. The packs contain a 32pp Teacher's Notes booklet, giving advice on how to teach poetry in the classroom with particular reference to the Literacy Hour. The books are available in both standard and 'big book' format.
