English

English involves using speaking and listening, reading and viewing, and writing to learn about:

  • texts and contexts
  • language
  • strategies

These three strands are interrelated. Texts are constructed, interpreted and responded to using language. Language, and the structure of the text, varies according to context, purpose and audience. Strategies are the processes by which learners use language to produce their own texts, and engage with and respond to the texts of others.

The study of English significantly supports literacy development. Literacy is the key to learning in all areas of study and we believe that it is fundamental to a child's development. We teach literacy skills daily that are relevant to our children's learning and build upon the literacy skills students bring to school.
