Reading is the key to learning
At Key Stage 2 our aims and objectives in the areas of:-
SPEAKING AND LISTENING, READING and WRITING are:
- To enable the children to express themselves clearly using standard spoken English. The children are encouraged to listen attentively to others and value their opinions, as well as learning to concentrate on and carry out instructions.
- To encourage the children to read fluently, confidently and with understanding. We hope that this will foster an enjoyment of reading throughout their lives.
- To encourage the children to be aware of the fact that we write in different ways for different purposes and to become confident, independent writers.
In addition, their handwriting needs to be legible and spelling and punctuation used correctly.
