Participating and contributing

This competency is about being actively involved in communities. Communities include family, whānau, and school and those based, for example, on a common interest or culture. They may be drawn together for purposes such as learning, work, celebration, or recreation. They may be local, national, or global. This competency includes a capacity to contribute appropriately as a group member, to make connections with others, and to create opportunities for others in the group.

Students who participate and contribute in communities have a sense of belonging and the confidence to participate within new contexts. They understand the importance of balancing rights, roles, and responsibilities and of contributing to the quality and sustainability of social, cultural, physical, and economic environments.

We are running an integrated literacy program where writing and reading are combined in the same session, 4 times a week. Other curriculum areas will also tie into these sessions to create rich learning experiences.

We will focus on one text a week. The LA will read to the children and model decoding and comprehension strategies. We will move on to shared reading, where the text is big enough for the children to read along with the teacher. Finally, students will end the week with independent reading, where they apply the strategies they have learned over the week.
