  • Key text(s) that will maximise reading and writing opportunities  
  • Speaking and Listening embedded within teaching and learning that includes the teaching of specific vocabulary 
  • Real experiences which provide and reinforce context for children (visits, visitors, artefacts, role-play etc…)
