Our Literacy Program incorporates 3 main interweaving components – Reading and Viewing, Writing and Speaking and Listening.
At Mentone Park students are engaged in our Literacy Program for at least two hours every day. Our Literacy Program incorporates whole class teaching, small and individual group work based on student needs and whole class reflection of their learning at the end of each session. Students are constantly challenged to further develop their comprehension skills in order to become critical, deeper thinkers. Students assessment includes both formal and informal testing.
Formal testing includes ‘On Demand’ testing, Essential Assessment, Victorian Curriculum Standards, PAT and NAPLAN.
Informal assessment includes running records, reading and writing assessment records, anecdotal notes, writing moderation and teacher observation.
