InitiaLit (R-2)

At St Catherine’s we wholeheartedly believe in fostering a love for learning.

This year we have introduced InitiaLit, an evidence-based whole-class literacy program that provides all children with the essential core knowledge and strong foundations to become successful readers and writers.  It is a 3-year program for our Reception to Year 2 students, that incorporates a synthetic approach to the teaching of phonics in a fun and engaging way.   The program incorporates daily lessons in phonemic awareness, reading and spelling as well as rich language instruction using children’s literature.  By providing strong foundations in reading and writing from the outset, we believe fewer children will fall behind, strengthening their foundation for greater success in higher grades.

For more information on this program you are welcome to contact us.
