Speaking & Listening Curriculum
Spoken language underpins the development of reading and writing. The quality and variety of language that pupils hear and speak are vital for developing their vocabulary and grammar and their understanding of reading and writing. (NC)
Speaking and listening is central to our Curriculum and is developed from EYFS throughout our school. We nurture children’s speaking and listening skills through a variety of approaches: exploratory play, storytime, hot-seating, philosophy sessions (P4C) and through collaborative learning across all subject areas.
We develop these skills so that our children are capable of expressing their own ideas clearly and confidently, in a safe and supportive environment, in all aspects and areas of their school life and into their future.
