In the National Curriculum for England, English is separated into spoken language, reading and writing although all the modes are interrelated. These are areas of learning that are studied in their own right and also applied across the curriculum. Reading comprehension is fundamentally supported by talk: talking about texts. Writing is deeply connected to reading: writers learn from the texts they read and the conversations they have about them. Spoken language is the foundation for of all English learning and teaching. English includes fostering a love of all kinds of text – in books and on screens – encouraging children to read and compose in a range of modes. The subject also welcomes the contributions made by the different cultures of the UK and relies on home language and literacy experience brought to school.
