Students become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society.
Literacy involves students listening to, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating oral, print, visual and digital texts, and using and modifying language for different purposes in a range of contexts.
It has been a lovely way to explore literacy concepts this week and finish with book week. The students have all enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters, listening to stories and celebrating the printed words of their favourite authors.
A significant highlight has been the enthusiasm demonstrated by students for this event and I have also enjoyed the fairytales created by Michael’s class as they have explored the narrative genre and produced a book which we will share with Uraidla Kindy later this term.
If your child has not brought in a book to swap today with their gold coin donation as advertised last newsletter, please do so on Monday as we will continue with this great initiative so that all have the opportunity to find a new story to take home. It certainly is exciting to see the range of texts students enjoy at home and them willingly offer to share them with their classmates with proceeds going to such a great organisation such as the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
Enjoy your weekend.
