Reading at Kilmore Primary School

 

We believe that all students learn differently and develop at different rates.  Our students need to receive a consistent approach to teaching reading that is constantly reinforced as the students move from year to year.

 

If teachers model common strategies when teaching reading, students will be encouraged to apply the skills themselves.

 

 

We teach reading strategies across all year levels using goal-setting with students in individual conferences, posting of goals on a whole-class board, developing small group instruction based on clusters of students with similar goals, and targeting whole-class instruction based on emerging student needs.

 

As students’ progress with their reading they will apply a variety of reading strategies successfully when reading more demanding levelled texts.

Writing at Kilmore Primary School


We believe that all students learn differently and develop at different rates.  Our students need to receive a consistent approach to teaching writing that is constantly reinforced as the students move from year to year. If teachers model common strategies when teaching writing, students will be encouraged to apply the skills themselves.

 

The writing block is a rigorous learning session where children are actively involved in creating their own texts and are taking responsibility for their learning. The teacher builds on the current strengths of the student to promote further learning.
