The continual focus for English through our literacy blocks at Newborough Primary School is to teach, assess and report on the Western Australian Curriculum English content, explicitly focusing on the age-appropriate instruction for students on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. In particular, our priorities for 2018 are the intentional teaching of vocabulary to develop students’ understanding and breathe of words to use in both oral and written texts; and to continue a whole school guided reading model focusing on reading comprehension strategies, vocabulary and fluency.
