The importance of literacy, including speaking and listening, reading and writing cannot be underestimated.
We aim to provide the pupils with the skills and knowledge to be able to speak, listen, read and write to the very best of their ability.
We endeavour to help our children converse clearly with each other and adults and provide them with the opportunity to listen to and participate in a wide range of language experiences.
Our aim is to develop a love of books. We hope that all the children will enjoy reading and know of the wide range of fiction and non-fiction available to them. Each class has their own library area with a variety of books for them to use.
We want all our pupils to be able to express their thoughts and ideas and be happy to use writing as a tool for communication.
