LITERACY PLANNING

We are learning to take responsibility for our literacy learning. 
This week we have started to plan our own literacy with the focus on choosing the 'Must Do' activities.
We make sure we prioritise. We also tick off what we have done before moving on the other learning activities. And most importantly we need to reflect on how we go each day.



We are still learning to all follow our plans and show that we can take ownership for our literacy learning.
