Language, Literacy & Communication
The Languages, Literacy and Communication Area of Learning and Experience addresses fundamental aspects of human communication. It aims to support learning across the whole curriculum and to enable learners to gain knowledge and skills in Welsh, English and international languages as well as in literature.
The four statements that express what matters in this Area should be addressed holistically. This means that different languages should be explored in relation to one another, so too the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. It also means that learning about and through literature should be seen as contributing to all aspects of learning about languages.
At Cleddau Reach we encourage children to develop their language skills across all areas of learning and through extra curricular activities. Every opportunity is taken to develop listening, reading, writing and speaking.
Our provision to develop the appropriate skills knowledge and experiences for Languages, Literacy and Communication includes:
- Daily literacy lessons
- Daily Reading sessions (whole-class, small groups and individual)
- Daily Phonics sessions in the Foundation Phase
- Cross-curricular Literacy links in other subjects, e.g. Reasoning skills in Maths
