Learning to Read and Reading to Learn

​Seville Road State School is committed to every child being literate - being able to read and write.

We explicitly teach our students how to read. Using the research about the steps to be successful readers, our early years teachers develop oral language, phonological awareness, concepts of print, phonics and vocabulary.

As these are learned to automaticity, students develop fluency. It is then that comprehension (understanding what is read) can be developed.

These skills are constantly revisited, revised and reinforced through daily guided reading lessons in all year levels - prep - year 6. Students also build their reading mileage by daily independent reading. Reading develops reading!

Our Reading to Learn lessons use the current research and through modelled and shared reading, children learn to read complex texts, grammar concepts and comprehension. They also learn the relationship between reading and writing through modelled writing, joint text construction and then individual writing.
