At Tylden PS, we prioritise Literacy and Numeracy development, with strong foundations laid in the first years of school. The Reading program is firmly grounded in the ‘Science of Reading’ and classroom study in the early years includes synthetic phonics, phonemic awareness and decodable readers. We systematically build spelling, vocabulary and comprehension skills at all levels to consolidate strong literacy skills. Tylden students mature into fluent and competent writers through a structured writing program based on the Writing Revolution. The numeracy program develops fluency in number facts, number sense and problem-solving skills in a well-planned and methodical sequence from Prep to Grade 6.
