We had a terrific turnout at our Letterland information Talk this morning, where Helen Kirkland (Learning Enhancement Coordinator for ELC to Year 6) explained in great detail how the Letterland program supports literacy development. Helen taught us more about phonological awareness and its importance in building firm foundations for future literacy development. Research indicates sound phonological awareness is a strong predictor in gauging future reading success. The program has been used at Tintern extensively in the Early Learning Centre to Year 2 over many years – it is a much loved program by us all!
