Language- Literacy & English

A broad general education

Every child and young person in Scotland is entitled to experience a broad general education. This broad general education takes place from the early years to the end of S3 and is represented by learning across all of the experiences and outcomes.


Literacy and English Experiences and Outcomeslanguages

  • The development of literacy skills plays an important role in all learning. I develop and extend my literacy skills when I have opportunities to:

  • communicate, collaborate and build relationships

  • reflect on and explain my literacy and thinking skills, using feedback to help me improve and sensitively provide useful feedback  for others

  • engage with and create a wide range of texts in different media, taking advantage of the opportunities offered by ICT

  • develop my understanding of what is special, vibrant and valuable about my own and other cultures and their languages

  • explore the richness and diversity of language, how it can affect me, and the wide range of ways in which I and others can be creative

  • extend and enrich my vocabulary through listening, talking, watching and reading.


In developing my English language skills:

I engage with a wide range of texts and am developing an appreciation of the richness and breadth of Scotland’s literary and linguistic heritage.

I enjoy exploring and discussing word patterns and text structures.
