Oracy plays an important role in both education and in society as a whole. At Our Lady & St Patrick's, we fully recognise that speaking & listening and the development of good communication skills are the cornerstones of all learning.
Through being taught to write and speak fluently, pupils learn to communicate their ideas and emotions to others; through their reading and listening, others can communicate and respond.
Reading allows pupils the chance to develop culturally, emotionally, spiritually and socially. Through reading a wide variety of texts pupils acquire new knowledge and vocabulary, and build on what they already know. In order to participate fully as a member of society, all the skills of language are essential.
