At Linton Primary School, we have high expectations that all students will reach their full potential. Literacy is about enhancing the strong links between speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Students are encouraged to read like a writer, they are exposed to real texts by real authors and write texts for a known audience with a clear understanding of the purpose. As readers, writers, spellers, speakers and listeners, students should always be encouraged to build on their prior knowledge to explore new possibilities.

We understand that Literacy learning is developmental using an oral language program as a foundation (for clarifying and reasoning) for all learning in Literacy. Our students engage in and are enthusiastic about Literacy as we encourage all students to capitalise on their personal interests for both reading and writing, whilst also branching into other areas which may interest them.

Teachers plan modelled, shared, guided, interactive, reciprocal and independent lessons which incorporate the gradual release of responsibility model and student interests. Our teachers also understand that the classroom environment must foster and motivate a student’s literacy learning and regularly provide these opportunities through visual displays, a variety of texts to read (both electronic and hard copy) and experiences where students can explore and develop interests as readers and writers.

High expectations, sound teacher knowledge, fun activities and explicit teaching of skills are paramount in our Literacy program.
