As you know, your involvement in your child’s learning is essential. With this in mind, we are launching a ‘Talk homework’. Once a month, on a Friday, we will send home a discussion question. The aim is to get children sharing ideas with their families and developing their vocabulary and imagination. Throughout the following week, children will present their ideas to the class (KS2 will be presenting in the form of a speech).
Tasks will be kept simple to enable all abilities and ages to join in e.g. Who is your favourite TV character and why? If you could be an animal for a day, what animal would you be and why? The following week, children will build on this ‘Talk homework’ and write up their speeches/discussions.
We do hope you will enjoy joining in with this learning and encourage your child to ‘Talk for writing’.
