The Richmond upon Thames School

Excellence Through Endeavour

Literacy & Numeracy

 
English is both a subject in its own right and the medium for teaching. Spoken language, reading and writing are developed within all subjects.
The development of numeracy and mathematical reasoning ensure pupils understand and value the importance of mathematics.

Literacy

Spoken language

Students’ development of spoken language enables them to clarify their thinking as well as organise their ideas for writing. 

Vocabulary development

Students’ acquisition and command of vocabulary are key to their learning and progress across the whole curriculum.

Reading and writing

Teachers develop students’ reading and writing in all subjects to support their acquisition of knowledge.

Numeracy

In relevant subjects students:

  • Apply arithmetic fluency to solve
  • Apply geometric and algebraic
  • Relate their understanding of probability to notions of risk and
  • Understand the cycle of collecting, presenting and analysing
  • Apply their mathematics to routine and non- routine problems and break down more complex problems into a series of steps
