Enhancing Literacy Learning
Throughout Prep-2 we incorporate a variety of literacy strategies, carefully selected materials and texts, together with responsive teaching to enhance the literacy learning experience for all students. During literacy sessions students are provided with opportunities to extend their understanding of reading, writing and speaking and listening through carefully planned learning experiences targeted at their individual point of need. Teachers use a whole-part-whole structure during literacy sessions utilising modelled, shared and guided strategies in whole class, student led, teacher focussed and individual contexts. This structure is effective for the continued development of students’ skills and understandings of literacy, language and literature. Literacy sessions are an exciting part of our day and students are engaged and focussed on achieving their learning goals, as well as developing a love of reading and writing.
