Term 3 Becoming a Word Detective and Writing Wizard – Students in Year 5/6

Reading and writing is a juggling act – to perform well, students need strong vocabulary knowledge, good spelling skills, firm understanding of grammar and the ability to organise their ideas logically. As a result, some students struggle to become successful readers and writers – even when they have wonderful ideas! DSF is offering a series of small group sessions during Term 3, 2019, designed specifically to improve a number of skills that are crucial for reading and writing; namely, knowledge of vocabulary, grammar, and reading comprehension strategies. These nine sessions are based on high quality instructional approaches, including Word Aware, Talk for Writing and Sounds~Write. This course is designed for students in upper primary (Years 5 and 6) who are looking to continue developing their vocabulary, grammar and reading comprehension.
