Oracy in the Early Years and Beyond

Children seem to be starting school with decreasing levels of oracy; and our focus on the written form for evidence can sometimes divert our attention from speaking and listening. This training shares several of our favourite approaches for oracy development in the Early Years, but the strategies need little adaptation to apply in the key stages too.

  • Active listening to encourage children to talk
  • Planning your talk to match the learning objective
  • Evidencing through talk - not just writing
