Speaking and Listening

Our curriculum intent

At Pinewood we want our children to leave us with the oracy skills needed to succeed in life.   Through our curriculum, we want to broaden our children’s vocabulary and enable them to be able to articulate themselves clearly.  We want them to be able to tell stories, hold conversations and discussions and debate.  Improving communication and language skills runs through everything we do.  We use strategies including word aware, Makaton and talk for writing to support and enhance this. 

Here are some useful speaking and listening games/activities for children in F1-Y2
