Language and Literacy are central to our ability to understand, interpret and communicate about the world and with each other.  Literacy is a thoughtful process which requires the reader to contribute his or her own experiences and thoughts to both the composition and comprehension of the written word.


The skills of reading and writing are fundamental to many aspects of life, and are central to developing and showing understanding in a wide range of areas of the curriculum. As writing is an everyday necessity, it is important to develop skills which allow individuals to communicate effectively with others. As print occurs all around, it is important to think of reading in a wider context than only books.
