Speaking & Listening

A good command of English is essential to the all-round development of every child leading to their success not only at Low Furness school but also in later life. Speaking and Listening permeates the whole of the curriculum and these skills are relevant right across the board. We use, amongst other things, a system of talk partners throughout school in order to enable children to share and develop their thinking and talk.

All our children take part in a wide range of activities for different audiences, such as reading aloud, group discussions, drama activities, presentations to the class, class assemblies to the school and annual productions for parents.
