Oracy + Talk for Learning
As I am sure you are well aware, talk is used constantly in our classrooms to deepen our children's learning. Visitors to our school are always amazed at how highly skilled they are.
We would love it if they could keep this going as much as possible while learning at home with you. Please see the document below that shares some ways to use discussion to ensure your child achieves their best over the coming weeks with you.
Tips to help with planning education at home
