In Year One, we have been developing our oracy skills. Oracy is really important for our learning as it helps us to learn through talk. We have been learning how to be good listeners, how to wait our turn and be respectful to our peers; and how to speak articulately and in full sentences, using the appropriate vocabulary. The children are confident using sentence stems to help them structure their sentences and they are beginning to confidently have class discussions and even debate and challenge each others ideas, through agreeing/disagreeing. Here are some pictures of the children having discussions in talking trios, groups, and as a whole class...


We hope to post some videos of their discussions here soon!
