Language, Oracy and Literacy
This sphere includes spoken language, reading, writing, literature, wider aspects of language and communication. It is about more than being able to read and write; fundamentally it is about ensuring that children have the cultural literacy, fluency and enjoyment of words that allows them to engage fully with the world about them.
It places spoken language at the heart of the curriculum and reinforces it’s fundamental position for all learners, empowering children, exciting their imagination, and widening their worlds.
Additionally, whilst ICT has a clear place across all spheres of learning, it is evident that it holds significant value within this area, creating and enhancing verbal and digital communication.
