At Greenhaugh we aim to develop a range of English Skills and competencies across all subjects and try to ensure that:
* Pupils can express themselves with increasing confidence in a variety of speaking and listening situations and respond appropriately.
* Pupils learn to read fluently and with understanding therefore being able to read for enjoyment, interest and information and appreciate the need for reading throughout their lives. The children are introduced to a wide variety of literature, poetry and prose.
* Pupils write for a variety of purposes using grammar, spelling, punctuation and syntax with increasing confidence and skill. * Pupils will develop well-formed and legible handwriting.
