Helping with literacy

WHAT CAN YOU DO AS PARENTS AT HOME?

As a school our three key literacy priorities are developing extended writing, puposeful talk, a whole school reading community. As parents we would expect you to engage your child in purposeful talk, writing and reading for pleasure and specific purposes. Use the images below to find out how you can do this at home.

Talking

“To be literate is to gain a voice and to participate meaningfully and assertively in decisions that affect one’s life.

To be literate is to gain self-confidence.

To be literate is to become self-assertive…

Literacy enables people to read their own world and to write their own history…

Literacy provides access to written knowledge- and knowledge is power. In a nutshell, literacy empowers.”
