I would be interested to hear how teachers in KS2 are organizing their
Literacy Hours now.

How many people are still sticking quite rigidly to the 15/15/20/10
minutes format that we were first introduced to? Are other teachers
using a more flexible approach? How to people feel about combining most
of the word work into one lesson for example, leaving a slightly longer
text input and activity time? Or taking group reading out of the hour (I
have always done this, and can't see how else you could do it). And the
most pressing question - does anyone mange to fit the plenary in?!

We have an hour and a half in our school. Since we stream KS2 by
ability, we each teach a particular year's program. I do the text and
sentence work, then teach my own program for group reading, along with
my LSA. She takes two groups a lesson and I take two. I only have 4
groups. This means every kid gets specific teaching each lesson.
Progress has been in leaps and bounds, for the most part.

I do a week's literature study and then a week's writing. Reading
instruction in groups goes through both weeks - no "guided writing."
Sometimes an entire whole class session is devoted to modelled writing.
When I use the "grammar for writing" program, it's the entire half hour.

The reading program I use isn't high on comprehension, so I try to do
some comprehension work in the whole class sessions. It's working pretty
well so far....
