Reading continues to be on the agenda at Virginia Primary, along with all areas of English as well as Mathematics. Your child/ren’s teachers have been working exceptionally hard to co-plan around ensuring we maximise support for reading. Our student support teachers are working with each class together with the Specialist Curriculum School Services Officers (SSOs) who are attached to each class to also support with reading.
We introduced morning LLI (Levelled Literacy Intervention) for our M/UP readers. These intervention sessions run from 8:30-9:15 am to ensure we minimise any potential time lost within the classroom and have been successful. This year we will again be running these sessions as well as an after school session for those children identified as candidates for this program.
What can you do to help you ask? Promote reading at home as much as you can, share a book with your child, talk to them about the book you have read and most importantly listen to them read every night!
