English is an important vehicle for learning and we believe in encouraging children to be confident in both oral and written forms of the English language. Good speaking and listening plays a vital role in the learning process and provides a strong foundation for the related skills of reading and writing. We provide many opportunities for speaking and listening in a variety of situations and to a variety of audiences.
Reading is the skill to learning; it is about understanding the written message and interpreting it. We believe that reading should be a great source of pleasure and enjoyment. Writing provides creative pleasure as well as being essential to aid effective learning.
