Literacy at Our School

Literacy is an integral part of how we operate at Barr Colony School. Not only do teachers at Barr Colony work together to plan and deliver lessons targeted at each student’s instructional level, but they also used the new Saskatchewan Reads document to guide their instruction. The extensive Saskatchewan Reads document is based on the research of leading reading experts.

Our Literacy Coach is an important part of our school-based literacy team and works alongside teachers to improve instructional practices.

At Barr Colony School, we have celebrated literacy in many ways this year. Every day, students from our leadership club read with students who do not always have an opportunity to read with someone at home.

We have had a “booknic” where parents came to school with a picnic lunch and read with their children. Many families come to our Family Literacy nights for both Kindergarten as well as the whole school.

During literacy nights, families read books and work together on activities based on what they have read. Character dress up day is always a favourite with students as they get to show off their favourite characters from their favourite books.

One of the school’s favourite activities this year was when two of our Grade 6 students shared a Cree book with the rest of the classes in the school. This was an amazing opportunity for them to take some leadership and to celebrate their culture.
