At St Catherine of Siena Primary School we provide a positive, structured literacy approach to teach reading, writing and spelling. We explicitly teach the building blocks of language in a systematic and sequential way in order to support each child to become confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens.
Daily 2 hour literacy blocks provide whole and small group and individual learning opportunities in which students develop the skills required in speaking, listening, reading, writing and thinking skills that will enable them to participate in a variety of meaningful contexts in all curricular areas.
St Catherine of Siena Primary School boasts a vibrant, well resourced school library.
Our library collection offers a broad range of reading materials across a range of genres and reading levels. Our library staff work collaboratively with classroom teachers to support classroom programs and to foster students reading skills and love of books.
