Learning & Teaching - Literacy

 

Literacy

 

Sacred Heart is the Parish primary school of the Sacred Heart Parish of Kew. The school, in the Melbourne Archdiocese, is a part of the Victorian Catholic Education system.

 

During the two-hour Literacy block students work both with teachers in small focus groups to consolidate and extend literacy skills and collaboratively, in small groups where they engage in meaningful activities, catering for their individual learning needs and styles. We place a very strong emphasis on Oral Language.

Each year we have a Public Speaking Program for all students from Prep to Year 6. Every second year the Year 5's and 6's complete a Public Speaking Program. which finishes with a Graduation Evening, where families are invited to attend.

We invite parents to assist in the classroom during the Literacy block. A Parent Helper’s workshop is offered each year to support parents who are interested in helping in the classroom.
