Developing children’s talk for learning

Developing Oracy skills

A key priority at Donnington Wood CE Junior School is the development of oracy. We are working hard to ensure all pupils make progress with this important skill and we monitor this progress across the school.

There are a number of ways parents and carers can help support their child in this key area.

Oracy

This is the ability to communicate through confident speaking and reasoning skills. Children need to become articulate and confident speakers and this year we are focussing on classroom talk to enhance vocabulary, demonstrate understanding and express ideas.

· Encourage your child to speak clearly and in full sentences using correct grammar in a variety of settings (shops, restaurants, with adults, etc)

· Help them develop a mature vocabulary by suggesting better word choices and teach them new words to use each week.

· Discuss ideas and talk with your child to help them express their thoughts and questions about everyday issues seen on TV or in the family home.

· Play word games that develop vocabulary choices and encourage descriptive techniques.

Skills for good talking

· Make eye contact -address your audience/listener

· Use the correct words and grammar. Avoid lazy fillers (‘stuff’)

· Speak clearly and make yourself heard. Use expression.

· Speak in full sentences and articulate your words.

· Listen attentively. Can you repeat what was said to you?

· Explain yourself – give reasons for your ideas. Say “I think… because…”

Reading and Oracy development

Dear parents/carers,

This year two key priorities at Donnington Wood CE Junior School are the development of reading skills and oracy. We are working hard to ensure all pupils make progress with these important skills and monitoring this progress across the school.

There are a number of ways parents and carers can help support their child in these key areas.

Reading

Children need to develop positive attitudes to reading and maintain consistent reading habits throughout their school life to succeed.

· Encourage reading for pleasure by setting aside time at home for children and adults to enjoy a storybook. KS2 children should be reading 3-4 times a week as a minimum.

· Build up a personal book collection or visit the local library. Other reading resources can be accessed online (use the free collections on the Oxford Owl website).

· Ensure the regular use of the school Reading Diary to log all reading. Any reading can be recorded in the purple book and these will be checked each week in class. Rewards and prizes will be awarded for well-maintained diaries.

Oracy

This is the ability to communicate through confident speaking and reasoning skills. Children need to become articulate and confident speakers and this year we are focussing on classroom talk to enhance vocabulary, demonstrate understanding and express ideas.

· Encourage your child to speak clearly and in full sentences using correct grammar in a variety of settings (shops, restaurants, with adults, etc)

· Help them develop a mature vocabulary by suggesting better word choices and teach them new words to use each week.

· Discuss ideas and talk with your child to help them express their thoughts and questions about everyday issues seen on TV or in the family home.

· Play word games that develop vocabulary choices and encourage descriptive techniques.

If you would like further help or ideas to help support your child’s education at home please contact us at school. We thank you for your continued support of the work we are doing in school.

Mr J Rawson

Deputy Head
