At South Lake everyone’s voice is valued and children are given the tools to articulate their thoughts confidently and respectfully across the curriculum, preparing them for life in modern Britain.
We do this by:
Setting high expectations for talk in every classroom.
Having a sustained & wide-ranging curriculum for oracy.
Building a culture of oracy.
Appraising progress in oracy.
In class, you will see:
Talk guidelines. Subject-specific vocabulary being taught. Planned sequences of learning building on oracy skills. Oracy-based outcomes such as showcases at the end of units of teaching, which are shared with a wider audience.
