Literacy

Language is central to students' intellectual, social and emotional development and has an essential role in all Key Learning Areas.


The learning experiences provided at Corpus Christi Primary assists students to become competent in English, and to use language effectively in a range of contexts.

Students from K-6 at Corpus Christi are actively engaged each day in literacy learning experiences involving talking, listening, reading and writing. The school ensures that students are provided with opportunities to develop their ideas, skills and understandings of English language and literature through a variety of experiences. Students also learn to interpret a range of literary and factual texts.

Each class, as part of their literacy block, participates in a Balanced Literacy Program (BLP), which caters to the individual learning needs of the students. The BLP consists of:

  • talking and listening
  • modelled reading
  • independent reading
  • shared reading
  • guided reading
  • readers circle
  • modelled writing
  • guided writing
  • independent writing
  • multi-literacies, including visual
