Reading Information Evenings - October 2019
Thank you to all those parents who attended our Infant and Junior Reading Information Evenings. We hope you found them useful. If you were unable to attend, a copy of the presentations and handouts can be found below. If you have any further questions, please see your child's class teacher or get in touch with Mrs Scott (Reading Leader).
World Book Day 2019
What a fantastic day we had! Thank you all so much for the effort you all put into the children's outfits. In the Infants, we started the day by opening our classrooms to family members and carers to share stories with children. Classes got together throughout the day and produced some fantastic work, shared books, designed new characters, created new books and enjoyed a lot of book talk.
Children talked about their favourite books and talked about how they had 'shared a story' this year.
The teachers all designed and made their own 'story in a box' and the School Council chose the winning entry: congratulations Miss Bradley on your amazing Harry Potter inspired box.
World Book Day is truly one of our favourite days of the year and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We hope the children did too.
Our Book Recommendations
Below are lists of books that we, as teachers and readers, recommend for children in each Phase to read. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
Reading Subject Leader
Lexia is a computer based program that supports children's reading progress throughout the school. It is having a real impact on children's confidence and progress.
Using Lexia, students work independently at their own pace through individualised learning paths to develop fundamental reading skills in a structured, sequential manner. Teachers are notified when students require support or intervention and are provided with the resources for face-to-face instruction.
