At Resurrection School we aim to foster a passion and enjoyment of literature through discussion and connections to a variety of rich texts.
Explicit teaching enriches understandings and sequentially develop proficiencies in all facets of literacy.
Students are supported to think critically within, beyond and about texts. They demonstrate transference of knowledge in creating their own communications, which are vital skills for citizens of future.
Literacy experiences actively promote growth at each student’s individual level so that every student can experience success. Teachers carefully observe children’s processing systems and teach, support and extended their thinking about visual and digital texts.
Students write for a variety of purposes and in many different styles. Explicit skills are taught in each lesson.Speaking and Listening, the precursor to all literacy, is also explicitly taught and developed throughout the school.
