Warrnambool Primary School believes that with the correct evidence-based instruction and time that all students can learn to read and write. Our teaching practices are underpinned by explicit instruction utilising the ‘I DO, YOU DO, WE DO’ model. We believe that consistency, structure and routines underpinned by staff coaching play a significant role in us continually striving to improve outcomes for students.
Our Literacy Block
Our Literacy block is encompassed by a systematic, synthetic phonics program – Sounds-Write. It provides all classrooms with support to teaching reading, spelling and writing. Sounds-Write provides structured, sequential steps from teaching simple CVC words like ‘sat’ too much more complex, five and six-syllable words like personification.
