Welcome to the Hampshire SLS Information Literacy packages. Information Literacy encompasses the skills that children need to be able to navigate a library as well as how to search for and evaluate information both in book and digital formats. Throughout these packages, we have used the Hampshire Five to explain what stage of Information Literacy each skill is at. The Hampshire Five are Planning, Finding, Using, Reviewing and Presenting.

Not all age groups will use all the skills. Each school is different and the way that Information Literacy skills are taught may be different. Schools do not have to use all of each package but can pick and choose.

These skills are important for all children throughout their educational life and by teaching them how to navigate searching for information, we are providing them with a lifelong skill.
