SNIP Literacy Programme - Phil and Carol Smart
 
The programme is aimed at increasing reading and spelling and uses the primary high frequency words (HFW). These words are grouped by selecting those that visually look different to each other. It is felt that this programme is appropriate for pupils of 8+ with standardised literacy scores of 80 or less, who have already been exposed to effective phonic/literacy teaching but are still struggling. The programme approaches literacy acquisition at the word level and addresses the gaps in phonics knowledge through the application of analytic phonics (drawing pupils’ attention to the make up of words as they break up the target word).
 
This is a fantastic resource to use with your child at home-  any questions please contact cheryl.miller@ntlp.org.uk
