Talk for Writing

Each fortnight we ask the children to talk about a challenging idea.  The children are given a question at lunch time which they then discuss with their peers and adults during their lunch, at playtime and in the classroom.  We then ask the children to write about their thoughts and add their writing to our Writing Wall so that everyone at St Francis can see all the ideas the children have about the question.  We will be publishing the fortnightly question in the newsletter so that parents can join in the debate modelling high quality speaking and listening with their children.  Please support us in this new initiative by discussing the question below and encouraging your child to think and write about the published question.
