For example, our Cambridge Primary English subject encourages a life-long enthusiasm for reading, writing and spoken communication. Students develop English skills for different purposes and audiences. This subject is for students who have English as a first language, and can be used in any cultural context.
Students develop skills and understanding in four areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. They will learn how to communicate effectively and respond to a range of information, media and texts to:
1. become confident communicators, able to apply all four skills effectively in everyday situations
2. see themselves as readers, engaging with a range of texts for information and for pleasure, including texts from different times and cultures
3. see themselves as writers, using the written word clearly and creatively for a range of different audiences and purposes.
