Speaking and listening is at the heart of all we do across the curriculum.

Spoken Language

  • Children are encouraged to develop their communication skills, pose questions and respond to questions and articulate their feelings and opinions clearly and sensitively.
  • Through our weekly ‘Good to be Me’ sessions we encourage and develop the children’s skills in public speaking.



We support the children to become enthusiastic writers.

  • Children are encouraged to write for a real purpose and for a range of audiences: stories, letters, poems, information, instructions etc.
  • Children learn to critique their writing, learning how to edit and improve.


Phonics is taught daily in all classes using the Little Wandle scheme.  The sessions are based on the Government’s systematic ‘Letters and Sounds’ document. This is supported by the Little Wandle scheme which you can find out more about at https://www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/ Phonics can be a little bit daunting for some parents and carers, please speak to your teacher if you want advice on how to best support your child.
