Structured Literacy Programme
We are using the latest research to ensure all of our students receive explicit targeted instruction around the science of reading. There is no ‘guessing’ of words at Tikorangi School as students from the age of 5 years old are taught how to read and write each sound linked to decodable texts.
We also use a structured writing programme from Year 3 that shows children how to write sentences and then build from there.
Our students are given daily opportunities to practice their mathematics skills. We try to use hands on learning wherever possible.
