This 90 minute session will explore the interplay of the curriculum, reading, writing and spoken language, providing delegates with a research-informed introduction to oracy before moving on to investigate the current policy context and classroom strategies.

This webinar will look at the many facets of oracy, starting from its origins in the 1960s; its place in the national curriculum; inclusion in the DfE early career framework  and most recent NPQ  in Leading Literacy.

Practical in nature, the webinar will invite delegates to reflect on how they can embed oracy as a key component of their classroom practice by presenting a range of approaches and free ESU resources.

The session will also include an opportunity to share ideas in breakout rooms with practitioners across the ESU network.

Areas that will be explored:

  • Oracy: an introduction to the research
  • Oracy and the national curriculum
  • What Ofsted says
  • Oral pedagogy
  • Getting started – case studies and approaches to try in school
  • Peer-to-peer exchange.

Who is the session aimed at?
The session is aimed at classroom teachers, literacy leads and heads of department across Key Stages 3 and 4.
