Language and Oracy
Communication skills are vital for both success and confidence in many areas of life and we want our pupils to develop the ability to express themselves clearly and effectively. We want to facilitate a love of books, story, rhyme and song and encourage pupils to foster their developing skills and enthusiasm in an environment where this is skillfully modelled and opportunities across the curriculum are provided. We recognise that both listening and speaking are important when communicating and opportunities to practise and develop these skills are provided. We want our pupils to be able to offer their opinions and reason articulately whilst also being able to debate a topic or viewpoint and disagree respectfully.
