At Springfield Infants and Nursery we recognise that Oracy is an integral part of children’s learning and that through talk, we are able to; develop children’s thinking and understanding, improve their discussion skills and broaden their range of vocabulary. Our main objective is to provide children with a solid foundation of communication skills to equip them for their school life and the wider world. We aim to deepen children’s knowledge and understanding of all subject areas through talk by setting regular opportunities for group discussions and class debates; this will enable them to share their ideas and formulate their own opinions. We will encourage them to be articulate and speak in full sentences by providing sentence stems, key vocabulary boxes, vocabulary display walls and word mats across the curriculum.
