Curriculum

 
 
This semester Reading continues to be our main
 
focus.
 
You would have received your home reading kit earlier in the year. This gives you some practical tips to help support your child as they learn to read and then later in their schooling read to learn. The home reading kit also has the comprehension and decoding strategies that we use at our school.
 
We offer parent workshops to educate parents and carers on how to best support their child on their reading journey. Dates for these are posted in our school newsletter and on the school Facebook page.
 
The school has invested heavily in providing Teacher-aide ide support to every class during reading time. We welcome any parents, carers or grandparents who would also like to volunteer in the class to support our children.
 
Our teachers are heavily committed to ensuring best practice is happening across the school during reading. To ensure this we constantly participate in a coaching cycle that includes observations and feedback from trained coaches and regular Professional Learning.
 
For children identified as requiring additional support in reading we have an exceptional Learning Support Team. Support from this team will be tailored to the needs of the child. If your child is identified as requiring additional support you will be contacted and the needs of your child will be discussed with you.
 
Children at Landsborough State School all have personal reading goals. The children are familiar with these goals and how they will be able to achieve them. These goals change as the needs of the child change. The report card that goes home at the end of each semester shares with families the current reading goal. The teachers ensure their practice suits the individual needs of the children in their class and will be more than happy to discuss how they are supporting your child to reach their learning goals with you.
 
Before school and during break times our library is open to give children as much opportunity as possible to read. In addition to this children visit the library at least once a week to borrow books to bring home.
 
 
If you are able to help support reading at Landsborough by listening to children read or helping in the class during reading time please contact the school office.
