• At Spring Gully Primary School all teachers from Prep to Grade 6 use the ‘whole class -small group - whole class' approach to teaching reading and writing.
  • The Senior department uses Literature Circles, Cars & Stars(a reading program to support low/at risk literacy learners), Guided Reading and Reciprocal Teaching strategies to engage literacy learners.
  • The Junior and Middle school uses Guided Reading and Reciprocal Teaching strategies to support all students with their literacy acquisition.
  • Teachers use benchmarking texts to accurately match students to home reading and teacher focused Guided Reading and Reciprocal Teaching texts. NAPLAN data (Grade 3 & 5) is used to assist focus teaching.
  • Reading Recovery is also offered at Spring Gully Primary School. This is a one on one reading and writing intervention program for students ‘at risk' in literacy acquisition in their second year of school.
