Bespoke consultancy to address the speaking and listening difficulties faced by today's children.
talkingpartners@primary (formerly known as Talking Partners) is a programme designed to improve the way children communicate across the curriculum, enabling them to be independent and skillful speakers and listeners. It's a targeted, time-limited (10 weeks) intervention that can be used with the whole class, small groups or individuals.
By providing opportunities to practice and rehearse target language through a range of focused activities, pupils develop their independent skills to become good communicators. talkingpartners@primary is a structured oral language programme providing part of an integrated approach to raise levels of achievement by improving children’s speaking and listening skills.
talkingpartners@primary also helps children to become more confident and competent users of English. It encourages them to listen more actively and talk for a range of purposes and draws particular attention to the links between oracy and literacy.
Talkingpartners@primary is effective, proven good practice. During a 10 week programme pupils typically make over 18 months progress in their productive oral language.
