From The Head Of Teaching & Learning
In Term 1, students in Prep - 2/3 participated in the initial part of the Read Write Inc program. This term, we are starting the next phase of the program, where students are broken into smaller groups and have explicit teaching of phonics, phonemic awareness, spelling, grammar, reading, comprehension and writing. Lessons are in full swing with students engaging deeply with the program and making great progress already.
Readers will be sent home each Friday (from the class teacher), with a special book sent home once a week online (as an eBook) for students to show off their excellent decoding, vocabulary, fluency, expression and comprehension skills to you in their 'Performance Read'. Please make a big deal about your child's Performance Read as they have worked hard on a range of skills throughout the lesson cycle on this text and they will be keen to show you their excellent reading skills.
