Literacy and Languages

Literacy is fundamental to all areas of learning, as it unlocks access to the wider curriculum and increases opportunities for the individual in all aspects of life. Language is at the centre of children’s learning, and it is through their language that they gain much of their knowledge and many of their skills.  At Howwood Primary  we give high priority to developing our children’s ability to use English Language effectively.  A variety of teaching approaches are used and care is taken to match materials and tasks to the needs of the child, ensuring success whilst maintaining challenge.

Pupils learn to present written work in a clear legible style, paying careful attention to spelling and punctuation.  Imaginative writing, functional and personal writing are all included in our writing programme.  Listening and talking skills are developed in many ways.  Children are encouraged to talk and listen in a variety of situations as part of our approach to interdisciplinary learning.
