Speaking & Listening

At Wicklea we believe that speaking and listening skills are fundamental to effective communication and to the process of all learning across the curriculum. Throughout the school we cover

  • Speaking for different audiences.
  • Listening and responding.
  • Discussion and debate.
  • Presentation, using play scripts.
  • Learning and performing poetry.

We maintain the importance of speaking and listening skills as facilitators for the whole curriculum by actively encourage speaking and listening on a whole-school basis in a variety of contexts.
