Talk Talk Talk!!

This week in Literacy we have experimented with a new approach! Read on to find out more...

In Literacy this week we have experimented with a new approach inspired by a training day last week ran by Pie Corbett. The 'Talk4Writing' method involves pupils learning a story off by heart through the use of images and actions. We are now one week into our three week unit and the writing this week has already been some of the best of the year. Using this approach, pupils minds are filled with new vocabulary an outstanding models of spoken and written English. What a powerful tool for the majority of our class who have English as an Additional Language and often struggle to generate new ideas! Here are the pupils acting out our story:
