At St Francis Xavier School our dynamic literacy program develops children to have a lifelong love of reading and writing. We view literacy as a subject that is essential to all learning areas, so here at St Francis Xavier School we have a whole school literacy approach to ensure a consistency of teaching practice and learning progression from Prep through to Year 6.

Our daily 2-hour Literacy block is filled with fun and challenging lessons that encompass reading, writing, language and spelling. As our children all have their own digital devices (Prep – Year 2 ipads / Year 3 – Year 6 Chromebooks provided), we also include digital literacy resources which allows our children to start building the skills to becoming digital citizens which will assist them when they transition through to secondary school.
