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-reading scheme is Heinemann Storyworlds soon to be supplemented by Discovery World, a non - fiction reading resource.

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, ERIC (Enjoy Reading In Class) time, story telling, fictional topics and personal research topics in the senior stages.

French is also undertaken at P6 and P7. This session two members of staff, Miss C Fleming and Mrs E Dorman, teach French to pupils in primaries 6 and 7. Pupils also benefit from a six-week block of French delivered by a colleague from our secondary associated school, Inverclyde Academy.
