Speaking and Listening

Children need to be able to express themselves orally in an appropriate way, matching their style and response to audience and purpose. Pupils at Great Coates Primary School are given opportunities to talk for a range of purposes and to communicate to different audiences.


They are provided with opportunities to listen and respond to a range of people. They are also given opportunities to participate in a wide range of drama activities, during which they are encouraged to evaluate their own and others’ contributions.
