Children all possess different abilities when it comes to learning. They also have different ways of approaching learning; different styles of learning that help them to attain understanding of what is being taught to them. Literacy skills play an important part of learning and improving these skills has always been a significant area of interest to all educators. Knowledge about the different ways in which children learn could be of great assistance in developing teaching practices that enable all children to improve their learning capacity. This research was concerned with the learning styles and literacy skills of students and the teaching styles in an upper primary school classroom. It firstly sought to find whether or not teaching styles were catering to the leaming styles of the students and what was the result, if any, of this interaction. The teacher's learning styles and teaching styles were also investigated. These two sets of data were then compared and analysed in terms of their interaction and implications in the academic performance of the four students throughout the period of observation.
