At Tyabb Primary School we have a strong focus on literacy skills from Prep to Year 6. Our Early Years Literacy program develops skills in the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking through a daily literacy block. Parent involvement in the class program is welcomed and encouraged throughout the school. A play based learning program in Prep also promotes the development of the children’s literacy skills. In Grades 3-6 the program focuses on further developing and building on the children’s literacy skills and knowledge. The children are encouraged to access and enjoy a broad range of literature and to experiment with a wide range of text types. Children at Tyabb Primary School are given the opportunities to gain the necessary skills to become active participants and communicators in today’s society.
