The Event

The low-down on 'Grade R and the Foundations of Literacy' at school.

Thursday, 28th November 2019


Are you the parent of a child who will be entering Grade R in the next couple of years? Then, this workshop is for YOU.


The Reception Year, Grade R, is a fundamental year in the development of a child's literacy and their love of school & learning. We should never run the risk of it being a wasted year or a negative experience. There is a wide range of 'Grade R' environments & curriculum on offer that, as parents, it really helps to be in the know.


Lianne, a teacher with over 20 years of experience in the field of education & training, will help you to understand some of the theory behind what takes place in a Grade R classroom. She will also give tips and advice on what shouldn't happen and what you can do at home to build on what is learnt at school. This will enable you, as parents, to understand the school environment better, maximise what your child takes away from this year, communicate more effectively with your child's teacher, effectively support and build on the learning taking place, support the school & teachers in constructive ways and ensure that your child has a happy and successful start to life at school.


You will learn...

  • how you, as a parent, can contribute to your child’s literacy development
  • what role you can/should play in your child’s academic life
  • what literacy is and how it affects academic success across all subjects
  • how Grade R contributes to the development of advanced literacy
  • what Grade R is all about & what should take place in the classroom
  • the value of learning through play – structured & unstructured – at home & at school
  • what neural pathways are and how they are created
  • what is meant by school readiness, how Grade R contributes to this and why it is important for entry into Grade 1


Literacy development should be the concern of the family as a whole and therefore, Lianne encourages mothers, fathers and guardians of all types to attend this workshop and fill in the gaps in their knowledge.
