Warrnambool Primary school

Literacy...‍‍‍

Warrnambool Primary School places a strong emphasis on developing literacy skills through meaningful contexts.

We believe the study of English is central to the learning and development of creative, confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed students.

Students develop skills to analyse, understand, question and communicate to become ethical, thoughtful, informed and active members of society.

Teachers work collaboratively to plan using the Victorian Curriculum and deliver a consistent approach to teaching literacy.

Daily explicit instruction in Synthetic Phonics (Sounds Write), reading, writing, speaking and listening is based around the implementation of Sounds Write, The Daily 5 / CAFE, Guided Reading and VCOP, which are an integral part of our curriculum delivery.  

Student conferences are part of the lesson process to ensure that individual goals are negotiated to help improve learning outcomes in reading and writing for every child.

‍‍‍A well-stocked school library and classroom libraries contain a streamlined and current collection of reading material to engage students and support independent reading.

All students have weekly access to the school library.
