Oracy Project 2022/23
Thursday, June 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We are delighted to be working with Voice 21, the National Oracy Charity, to bring members an oracy project to help every child in school find their voice!
Oral communication skills (or oracy) are vital to young people’s success in school and beyond, and yet they are not skills which are taught explicitly. Voice 21’s mission is to support schools to help teachers get children talking in schools. We know that this is particularly important in supporting disadvantaged children who often start school with oracy skills well below the expected level.
How can Voice 21 support your school?
The National Curriculum places emphasis upon the importance of the spoken word and regards ‘Fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects.’
These sessions will support teachers to ensure that pupils build secure foundations by using discussion to probe and remedy their misconceptions.
- To become confident in the understanding of oracy and how it impacts and lifts the quality of learning
- To improve the knowledge of oracy and the teaching of it
- To help children find their voice at school
