Oracy matters

Engaging in high-quality oracy practices seeks to deepen understanding and is linked with greater knowledge retention, vocabulary acquisition and reasoning skills.  we provide a range of oracy opportunities for children across the school including an annual performance show, Talent show and daily oracy opportunities.


We provide our children a range of daily opportunities to develop their oracy skills. Activities includes:

  • Tailored and specific activities which promote speaking and listening opportunities for all children.
  • Opportunities for deeper discussion across a range of subjects.
  • Performance poetry and opportunities to read out work aloud..
  • Drama and performance plays for every year group.
  • High quality questioning by staff to elicit understanding and promote higher level thinking skills.
  • Paired and group talk.
  • Public speaking opportunities with other schools.
  • Community work with the local church and care homes.
  • School Council.
