Literacy and English

P3 preparing interview questions for 'A Day in the Life of....'

Central to learning is language development through which pupils gain much of their knowledge and many of their skills allowing them to access the wider curriculum and community.

Whether through Listening and Talking, Reading and Writing, high priority is given to developing pupils’ ability to use English Language effectively.

In the early stages the core approach to reading is North Lanarkshire Active Literacy and the reading scheme is Rigby Star , fiction and non-fiction readers. In the upper stages language development is supported by a rich programme of study, a wide range of resources encouraging pupil interaction and sound teaching and learning practices. Reading for enjoyment is encouraged through Home Readers, opportunities to read and be read to in class, story telling, fictional topics and personal research topics in the senior stages.

Modern languages are also taught across the school with French being taught as a second language in nursery to P7 and Spanish as a third language in P5-7.
