Language is a life skill. Through the use of language, children explore, organise and make sense of their world. They also develop skills that will be essential in the adult world. Language learning is a process that continues throughout their lives. The aim of the English and Literacy programme is to enable the children, through an integrated programme of Speaking & Listening, Reading & Writing, to:

  • read and write with confidence, fluency and understanding, using a range of independent strategies to self monitor and correct, 
  • have an interest in books and read for enjoyment,
  • have an interest in words, their meanings and develop a growing vocabulary, which will enable them to communicate with a variety of audiences for a range of purposes in both spoken and written forms,
  • understand a range of text types and genre,
  • develop the powers of imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness

English in action!
