At Tranmere Park Primary School, the children are given many opportunities to extend and develop their Oracy skills. Through a well planned curriculum, the children are explicitly taught key Oracy skills and these are developed in a variety of ways. Through classroom debates, presentations, performance poetry and role play, children are given purposeful experiences in which to communicate effectively, listen with understanding and be enthusiastic learners.

In addition to the requirements of the National Curriculum, we understand that the education of our pupils cannot simply be restricted to the teaching of academic subjects. Our school wishes to offer a range of diverse and engaging enrichment activities to engage ALL pupils with their learning.

Some of these activities include:

-Class assemblies

-Parent Drop ins (where children are given the opportunity to present their work to their parents)

-Christmas performances

-Challenge Days

-School Council

-Residential Visits

-School Trips/Visitors

Challenge Days

Here are the children completing a French/Oracy/History Challenge Day linked to Bastille Day. The children role played this famous event in history, freeze framing key moments.

School Productions

Throughout the academic year, the children are given many opportunities to perform in front of an audience. Some examples of these are the Christmas and Upper Key Stage 2 end of year performances.

Photos coming soon!

The children also take part in class assemblies/drop ins where they present their work to the school and wider community.

School Council

Our school have an active school council who frequently present findings from their meetings to their peers. Here are this year’s school council: 

School Trips/Visits

The children are given many opportunities to extend their learning through school trips and visitors to school. Here, our KS1 children are partaking in a Great Fire of London workshop with Jacob from Codswallop. The children were exploring this key event in history through role play and discussion.
