On Monday afternoon, parents of ALL students met with the teachers and were introduced to the intervention. To begin with, Miss Pulman gave parents an overview and then the Kiwi team students worked with her, while the Pukeko team students worked with Mrs van Zyl. In these sessions, the parents saw how the teachers use games to encourage knowledge of sounds and spelling patterns and were introduced to some basic teaching strategies in writing. The children then received their 'treasure bags' with writing equipment that will encourage and help them to write at home. It was wonderful to see parents attending and working with the teachers to understand how the ALL intervention works. We are committed to helping our students progress and achieve in Writing. Through this intervention, students receive in-depth, consistent and highly effective teaching. We look forward to seeing their writing as they progress through this intervention and we encourage parents to support their children in their efforts.
