Join us for Year 5/6 Open Evening - Wednesday 6 October 2021 - 4:30-7:00pm

Literacy focus

We want all students to understand the importance of developing reading, writing and oracy skills. We recognise that it is the responsibility of all staff from all subject areas to teach literacy skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening are integral to all subjects.

In order to raise the profile of literacy, to support students with their learning and to raise standards across the curriculum, there are three ‘literacy’ expectations of all students at all times:

  1. Reading book in their possession (reading)
  2. Speak in full sentences and no slang (speaking)
  3. 3. Track the speaker/s (listening)

Teachers are required to model reading aloud and reading in silence facilitate class discussion and check reading logs.
