Language and Literacy

 

The development of children’s language is crucial to their success across the curriculum.  We want all children to be able to speak clearly and with confidence and to develop a love of reading and writing.  We aim to teach children to communicate effectively in speech and writing, and to listen with understanding.  We also aim to help children become enthusiastic, responsive and knowledgeable readers.

 

Throughout the school, literacy is taught daily.  English lessons and focus activities provide a range of opportunities to develop reading, writing and speaking and listening skills for different purposes.   For the School's approach to the teaching of the different aspects of literacy, please follow the links below.
