Literacy at Home


We recognise that there will be parents within our school community who want to support their child’s learning even more effectively at home.

✔  Reading for pleasure
✔  Reading proficiency and fluency
✔  Writing proficiency and accuracy
✔  Vocabulary knowledge

These weekly bulletins aim to give you short, effective and easily-applicable pieces of advice that can fit into your family routine at home.
