This week’s Talk Project discussion:
All About Talk Project
Every Wednesday afternoon we hold ‘Talk Project’ sessions in all classes in KS1 and KS2. These sessions give the children the opportunity to develop their speaking and listening skills. More than this though, they offer the chance for us to facilitate discussion about important issues that affect us all as global citizens.
As you know, we are a Rights Respecting School. A Unicef UK Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. We passionately believe that by giving our children regular opportunities to discuss children’s rights, they will develop a deeper understanding of the importance of rights and see themselves as rights-respecting global citizens who are advocates for social justice, fairness and children’s rights at home and abroad.
Talk Project Leaders
12 of our Year 5 students are Talk Project leaders.
Each Wednesday, in pairs, they go to support the discussions held in class. Each session, they record key quotes from the class discussions to add to the Talk Project display.
Talk Project at home
Each week we will send home the following week’s discussion question via Class Dojo. We hope that this will be an opportunity for you and your family to have a chat at home about the topic. This will support your child to develop their ideas for discussion before the session. It will also help to develop our whole school community’s understanding of the rights of the child.
Please check the website each week as there may be additional resources to support your discussions.
