Literacy

Literacy is crucial to the success of individuals in both their career aspirations and their quality of life.

 

Literacy is the ability to read and write appropriately in a range of contexts. It is used to develop knowledge and understanding, to achieve personal growth and to function effectively in our society. Literacy involves the integration of speaking, listening and critical thinking with reading and writing. It involves continuum of learning in enabling individuals to achieve their goals, to develop their knowledge and potential and to participate fully in their community and wider society ( UNESCO).

 

Literacy is the single-most important part of education. Without literacy, all other learning is impossible. Without the ability to do any of these skills, there is absolutely no way to acquire more knowledge. Therefore, competence in English will enable students to learn about the role of language in their own lives and other cultures. They will then be able to communicate their thoughts and feelings, to participate in society and to make informed decisions about personal and social issues. They will also be able to analyse information and viewpoints to use their imaginations and to think about the influence of culture on the meaning made with language.

 

At Al Noori Muslim School, we are dedicated to providing rich, engaging and significant literacy experiences to enhance the knowledge of our students and make them proficient learners. This involves engaging students in complex questioning, challenging them to evaluate the texts that they listen to, read and view, write about familiar and unfamiliar texts. They then self reflect to highlight their areas of strengths and work together to improve their weaknesses.

 

Our students participate in many enjoyable literacy based activities including the writing competition, book week, National Literacy Week and our annual character parade. These events are highly successful and encourage our students to develop and appreciate a love for reading and rewarded students for using their creativity and imagination in their writing.
