At Ling Moor, we are passionate about Oracy and see it as vital in ensuring that children grow up to become lifelong learners. Oracy should be at the heart of the curriculum; children should be given ample opportunities to articulate their ideas and rehearse sentence construction. During their time at Ling Moor, children will be equipped with the skills to enable them to communicate effectively and confidently discuss and debate with their peers both in and out of the classroom. Objectives from the National Curriculum should be covered and elements of the Talk for Writing process used. For some children, specific intervention will be used to support them in articulating their thoughts.
Progression in Oracy is mapped out using the Voice21 Oracy Progression document. Here, teachers will find teaching ideas and opportunities for children to practise Oracy skills across the curriculum.
