Gain lesson-planning ideas by watching these Key Stage 1/2 teachers demonstrate creative speaking and listening activities which are both engaging and challenging.
The day begins with Year 2 hosting The Chat Show, a fun activity that encourages all pupils to speak, listen and ask questions. Meanwhile, KS2 classes play Connective Cards, a simple and effective small-group activity that enables pupils to practice using connectives as sentence starters.
Later, Year 5 and Year 6 use role play as a powerful stimulus to talk about an emotive issue, as they act out Talking About The Bear Cage. And finally, The Speaking and Listening Ball acts as a handy tool for pupils, helping them develop good speaking and listening skills in group work.
