    To start off don't panic! I have just completed my probation year. Are you placed in North Lancashire? if so they provide training on the Active literacy pack. Your mentor will also go through everything with you. The best advice I can give you is ask questions even if you feel like you should know something just ask. I worked at 2nd level so I can remember off hand what exactly is in the P3 literacy pack but it is very much based on Phonemes you will have a list to work through each week. There will also be common words again this is in the pack. your school will have a book based at your staged that talks you through it and it will become your bible for the next year. A lesson usually follows the layout of - phoneme spelling, reading then an activity based on the book. Hope that helps a little. Good luck!
