Our literacy framework is almost entirely the national curriculum, although I do use learning aids and texts that I feel my children will enjoy more instead of the standard texts schools would use.
The national curriculum for literacy is broken
down into roughly 11 units, 4 units for Narrative, 4 units for Non Fiction and 3 units for poetry.
Each unit is then broken down into weeks of study but, remember that homeschooling may mean you manage to get through a unit much faster.
Further information and teaching ideas can be found by clicking on each study unit (link can be found in the resources section on this website main menu).
Some examples of work for the literacy units are attached. My 7 year old son really enjoyed the non-fiction section of the literacy curriculum and so we found ourselves spending more time on this area and adapting it to his interests.
