The development of communication and language is the foundation of all literacy development and an essential element of all learning. We want our pupils to become excellent listeners and to be articulate with a rich and extensive vocabulary. We therefore ensure that throughout the school there are continual opportunities for children to participate in:
Whole class discussion
Small group discussion
Drama based activities such as role play, freeze frame, Forum theatre etc.
- Class assemblies
- Talking to parents
- Opportunities for public speaking such as pitching to become a School Ambassador
- Opportunities to collaborate with DASP schools in events that focus on Oracy skills
