speaking and listening to impact writing

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by fayebaline, Feb 6, 2011.


  1. I have an ob next week with set 2 year 5 literacy and the focus is
    speaking and listening and how it can be used to support writing. We are
    looking at famous people and biographies. I was thinking of giving
    pairs a selection of facts about a person. Then into groups where they
    share their facts (using cubes to help take turns) for others to listen
    and record the facts. THen they can work in pairs again to improve vocab
    Any ideas to improve this as I feel its lacking some inspiration!!!
    Thanks

  3. Chang eof plan I now think i'm going to write a letter from one of
    our famous people and the speaking and listening could be aciting out
    what thye would say and how we could change that it to written words
    This sound better as i feel a bit more confident about it!
    Thanks
     
  4. How about hotseating? They have to actually interview the famous person ... This worked really well for me with a year 6 class last week, but we didn't just have an hour to do it in I will admit (we were exploring Anne Frank in history, and were writing a biography about her in literacy)
    It slightly depends on the personalitites in your class though ...
    Good luck!
