We focus on learning with reading at the heart of everything we do

Talk Time

As part of our drive to improve the oracy of our children we now have Talk Time Assemblies three times per week. The idea of these assemblies is to give children a chance to discuss and debate issues that are interesting and important and to develop their debating skills. 

 

On a Monday we have a whole school assembly where the theme is introduced through a stimulus such as a presentation, image or video clip. A key question for the week is posed to the children.

 

On a Tuesday children have a key stage assembly where they have an opportunity to discuss and debate the theme in a smaller group so there are more opportunities for each child to talk. 

 

On a Wednesday assembly takes place within the classroom and the theme is discussed in greater depth as a class. 

 

Themes we are covering during the Autumn Term:
