Speaking and Listening Grades F-2
Speaking and Listening is an important component of the Junior Literacy program. The students participate in Language Experience and Share Time. The students are rostered on for share time in their classroom. The students are asked to bring something to share or retell a special event that has happened recently. The students will be learning interaction skills such as listening while others speak, using appropriate voice levels, articulation as well as asking questions and making statements. The second component is a program called Language Experience. The students will have the opportunity to listen to visitors speak about their occupation, interests or talents. They return to their classroom and respond to what they have learnt from the speaker.
Speaking and Listening Grades 3-6
The programs run in a similar format to a TV show with an anchor person at the helm. Students are rostered to present items to their group and the dates and requirements of their presentations are written in their diaries.
Supporting programs include Computer Studies, Library, Religious Education, Bike Education, Interschool Sport, Gymnastics, Swimming, Life Education, Instrumental Music, Camps and Excursions, Early Years and Middle Years, Integration, Fine Arts and Active After School Community Program.
