Year 1 & 2 Literacy & Learning Resources
Literacy becomes a focus with students learning the power of reading to gain information and writing as a way to share ideas with others. Initially written work is phonetic, however over time phonic and high frequency words should transfer across to written work. Oral reading should transition from a reliance on ‘sounding-out’ to reading in an automatic and fluent manner. Reading, spelling and writing should develop into a more ‘effortless’ process. Despite literacy as a major focus, for many students motor and oral language skills may still require attention.
