Mrs Cameron is trying something a little different for Big Talk on a Friday. Instead of setting homework for discussion at home on a specific topic, Mrs Cameron is using an interactive game on the interactive white board to generate discussion.
The children are given a starting sentence and then work in pairs to improve it to a superb sentence. This may involve adding WOW words (adjectives) or connectives to extend the sentence.
The children did this last Friday and really enjoyed it whilst being very engaged. We will continue this for the next few weeks, so don't be surprised if they are not coming home with 'Big Talk' homework. We will still be working hard on Big Talk in class on a Friday.
ANY discussion you have with your child about any subject will support them with class discussions and help develop their speaking and listening skills.
Thanks for your support
Mrs Cameron & Miss Kitchen
