LITERACY

At Dominion Road School - He Maunga Teitei, we believe that literacy is essential to learning and being able to communicate effectively.  A strong foundation in literacy will set our students up for success as they look to contribute in society and seek learning opportunities independently.  Oral language underpins all learning and precedes both good quality writing and helps to develop vocabulary in Reading.  

 

Our literacy learning is based on best practice which acknowledges that all our students have something to say and share. We endeavour to create authentic learning opportunities that are relevant to our learners and their interests.  Our teachers place emphasis on the enjoyment of reading and writing within various contexts and integrated throughout the curriculum.  

 

Students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning and take a lead role in identifying their next learning steps, in partnership with their teachers, peers and whānau.
