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 two hour literacy program 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, Victorian Curriculum Standards and NAPLAN.
Informal assessment includes running records, reading and writing assessment records, anecdotal notes and teacher observation.
