The continual focus for English through our literacy blocks at Leinster Community School is to teach, assess and report on the Western Australian Curriculum English content, explicitly focusing on the age-appropriate instruction for students on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. In particular, our priorities for 2018 – 2020 are the maintenance of the whole school English Plan, continued implementation of Talk 4 Writing and Soundwaves Spelling.

We will continue to develop students’ understanding and breadth of words (tier 2&3) to use in both oral and written texts; and to continue a whole school guided reading model focussing on reading comprehension strategies, vocabulary and fluency.
