Kia ora whānau,
You will notice that there are some literacy Home Learning resources in your child's reading folder this week. These resources are to support what they are learning in their structured literacy lessons. More alphabet letters and resources, such as heart words will be added.
If you have queries about the structured literacy programme or are interested to hear more about it, please join us for the workshop detailed below.
The Structured Literacy Approach: Parents and Caregivers workshop - understanding how our children learn to read.
Join us in the staffroom at 3.15 pm or 7:00pm on Tuesday 30th March 2021.
Caroline Morritt, our Resource Teacher of Literacy will explain this approach to teaching reading and writing. Based on the Science of Reading, Beckenham Te Kura o Pūroto uses an explicit, systematic structured literacy approach to build a strong literacy foundation.
Decodable books support targeted classroom teaching of phonological awareness and blending and segmenting skills for accurate, automatic reading and spelling.
