English and literacy

English is one of the most important subjects on the curriculum. It is essential that all children are given the best facilities to enable them to master the complexities of the English language. Children enjoy listening, looking, watching and mimicing right from birth. These increase vocabulary, stimulate an interest in reading and provide a solid basis for understanding. We have divided this page into sections on various parts of the English work covered in school so that all can enjoy reading, writing and have a good understanding of the English language.
