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.

This term we will be following an integrated approach to literacy. We have learners with a range of abilities from very emergent to those with increasing independence and confidence.

In our literacy sessions we will use big books and experiential activities to prompt, particularly, our writing. We will use shared stories to develop our knowledge and understanding of elements of writing and reading, oral language and comprehension. We will also use the Storytelling process for some of our sessions.
