Cambridge Primary – Oracy Lesson – Part #4


[intro music]>>NEIL: Oracy education obviously consists
of helping children develop the particular skills of using their voice and of listening,
making themselves clear and so on, some of the physical aspects of speaking. But a really vital part of oracy education
is developing their awareness of how spoken language is used, and how they use it already
and how they can use it more effectively.>>LYN: And this is a thing called a ‘talking
point’ and it’s a single idea, but I want your ideas about this idea. Everybody’s idea in the whole class.>>STUDENT: I kind of agree, and I kind of
disagree, because animals are important but we can go to school, but animals can’t.>>LYN: That’s very important, isn’t it? It’s to do with the word ‘important’: we can’t
live without them, but we’re important in different ways.>>STUDENTS: And when the lights begin to
show up from the town, I will mark which must be mine and start down.>>LYN: So the idea of talking points is that
you can provide provocative statements is how we think of them, where you introduce
an idea that the children can then agree, disagree with or examine together that can
help them think productively about whatever the topic is, but they haven’t got to come
to a conclusive answer, like a question. [music]
