Literacy

Literacy skills are the foundation for all other learning at school.

It is the main priority from day 1 at school.

Our children are assessed in their literacy knowledge within the first few weeks of starting school and they are grouped for learning to read straight away. 

We believe in:

  • deliberate teaching of reading and writing
  • saturation with books
  • providing a print-rich classroom
  • stimulating colours, shapes and pictures
  • evaluating
  • individual learning needs and targetting them quickly

We provide a range of remedial oral and reading group instruction, as well as providing extension for the bright and gifted.
