The development of literacy skills plays an important role in all learning.

Pupils develop and extend  literacy skills when they have opportunities to:

  • communicate, collaborate and build relationships
  • reflect on and explain  literacy and thinking skills, using feedback to help them 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 an understanding of what is special, vibrant and valuable about their own and other cultures and their languages
  • explore the richness and diversity of language, how it can affect them, and the wide range of ways in which they can be creative
  • extend and enrich  vocabulary through listening, talking, watching and reading.

In developing my English language skills pupils:

  •  engage with a wide range of texts and develop an appreciation of the richness and breadth of Scotland’s literary and linguistic heritage
  • enjoy exploring and discussing word patterns and text structures.
