Speaking, Listening and acquiring new vocabulary is at the heart of all teaching at Bradley Primary School. Indeed, the whole curriculum is taught through Oracy. The majority of our children are EAL speakers and begin school in the Foundation Stage with a limited vocabulary. Opportunities for Speaking and Listening and Drama permeate the whole curriculum.
Talk Boost interventions run across Foundation and Key Stage 1. In Key Stage 2, Oracy is taught through the strategies developed through ‘Voice 21’s transition from Primary School to High School. These strategies are adapted and developed throughout Key Stage 2.
Listening guidelines are displayed and followed in every class across Key Stage 2. Interactive teaching strategies are used to engage all pupils through learning and performing songs, playing games and presenting information to an audience.
