Year 1/2

Year 1 Pupil Voice – The children in 1/2ET think their communication skills have really improved.

“Yes! We have got better at listening to other people. We know that we need to not shout. We have got better at acting and using our voices to explain what is happening at the same time. We have learnt to recite poems without the paper in front of us and to use expression and actions!”

Year 2 Pupil Voice – The children in 2DT could give lots of examples when asked what communication is, including, “ It is learning to speak loud and clearly. We listen to each other. We can communicate with our friends. It’s how you hold your body when speaking and actions. It’s acting and speaking a poem. You need to take turns and not talk over each other.”

Year 6 Pupil Voice – The children in 6D and 6VA could talk about lots of opportunities for communication including, “In RE we worked together in groups to research (for an argument). We also produced stained glass windows (Christianity) and geometric patterns (Islam) so we were expressing ourselves through art. In DT, we worked in teams to design, create and test our contraption. In Literacy we created an individual story map for Hamlet and a group one for A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We’ve also had opportunities for drama including freeze frames. In PE we had to communicate when playing Scorpion Volleyball.”
