Communication policy 1

  1. 1. George Hastwell School Policy for Communication, Language & Literacy Incorporating English Policy The staff and governors at George Hastwell School recognise that communication is the basis of all learning. They acknowledge that it has a central role to play across the whole curriculum and value the essential role played by the Communication Support Department in the development of communication. They greatly value the collaboration which takes place in order to develop pupils' abilities to communicate and to access all areas of learning. Communication, Language & Literacy Communication, Language and Literacy is made up of the following aspects: Language for Communication - is about how pupils become communicators. Learning to listen and speak emerges out of non-verbal communication, which includes facial expression, eye contact and hand gesture. These skills develop as pupils interact with others, listen to and use language, extend their vocabulary and experience stories, songs, poems and rhymes. Language for Thinking - is about how pupils learn to use language to imagine and recreate roles and experiences and how they use talk to clarify their thinking and ideas or to refer to events they have observed or are curious about. Linking Sounds and Letters - is about how pupils develop the ability to distinguish between sounds and become familiar with rhyme, rhythm and alliteration. They develop understanding of the correspondence between spoken and written sounds and learn to link sounds and letters and use their knowledge to read and write simple words by sounding out and blending. Reading - is about pupils understanding and enjoying stories, books and rhymes, recognising that print carries meaning, both fiction and fact, and reading a range of familiar words and simple sentences. Writing - is about how pupils build an understanding of the relationship between the spoken and written word and how through making marks, drawing and personal writing pupils ascribe meaning to text and attempt to write for various purposes. Handwriting - is about the ways in which pupils' random marks, lines and drawings develop and form the basis of recognisable letters.
