Year 1 & 2 Literacy & Learning Resources
It is within Year 1 and 2, where the range in student ability becomes very evident. Students focus on learning the power of reading to gather 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, motor and oral language skills development is also scheduled. Supporting students who are experiencing difficulty, while extending students who are more than capable, is central to PLD’s Structured Synthetic Phonic (SSP) offering. This is facilitated through evidence-based programs, screening tools, professional learning and parent information downloads to help your students achieve their best outcomes.
