Learning and Teaching

Learning and Teaching

Literacy consists of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and spelling and is critical to enable students to engage successfully with all aspects of the curriculum.  It would be wonderful if all children learned to do all of this at the same time, but just as all children don't learn to walk at the same rate, the same is true with literacy. Typically children ‘learn to read’ in Years 0-3 and ‘read to learn’ in years 4-6.  Every day at Papamoa School, we integrate all the components of literacy into our classroom programmes.

We believe that children are likely to learn more effectively when they are motivated, engaged and their parents/caregivers are positively involved in their learning.  There are lots of ways you can do to help your children improve their literacy skills.  The key is connecting learning to their interests and everyday experiences.  We encourage parents/caregivers to read and engage in books together and talk to your child about what they are learning in school.
