Literacy for KS3

Literacy for Key Stage 3

These literacy units for Key Stage 3 learners with cognitive difficulties use engaging scenarios based on local life, both modern and historical, to develop their literacy skills. They provide teachers with teaching frameworks to enhance learning and make it more exciting, dynamic and effective for the learners.


Multi-literacy represents an inclusive approach to literacy. The traditional definition of literacy has widened to include comprehension of all types of visual and printed texts, audio, spatial and gestural information, and the ability to make textual connections. Text is often non-linear and integrated with images, audio and video. Today's learners require a broader range of skills to encompass ever-changing technologies.
