Children are given opportunities to write for many different purposes and audiences both within English and in other subjects. A main focus is for children to edit and improve their own work, sometimes in collaboration with their peers, to produce a final piece of writing of which they are proud. Children's work is celebrated by being displayed around school and in the local community. The school has invested in the "Lets Get Spelling" programme to teach children spelling rules in a fun and engaging way. Speaking and listening skills are encouraged through class discussions and debates and through dramatic performances.
