Speaking and Listening
To deliver an engaging literacy curriculum, that promotes children’s love for reading and enhances their written and oral communication.
Speaking and listening is a vital skill. We provide pupils with a number of opportunities to practise their speaking and listening skills and use a number of strategies to promote this including: my turn, your turn and turn to your partner. We dovetail this with our teaching of reading where we provide pupils with a number of sentence starters that scaffold pupils ideas and increasing pupil's confidence and articulation.
Pupils will regularly share their work and take part in discussions.
Pupils are also given the opportunity to practise their speaking and listening skills outside the classroom.
