Spoken Language

The new English curriculum reflects the importance of spoken language in pupils’ development across the whole curriculum. Children at Cheriton have many opportunities to become confident speakers – and listeners. Drama techniques are often used in literacy lessons – to retell the story or to develop empathy with characters.

Role play is very important in FS and Year 1 as it enables children to explore language connected to class topics.

From time to time, children may participate in a series of lessons or activities from the “Talking Partners” programme.

Classes also have “Talk Time” boxes to encourage meaningful conversations led by an adult.
