CMPS is launching a 'Big talk' focus from Monday 15th October to help us raise the profile of Speaking and Listening across school. We recognise the huge importance of Spoken Language and know that talking is a vital part of a child's development. Each week we focus our children and families on a topic to stimulate talk and discussion between home and school.
We will have a weekly 'Big talk' focus which will be the same throughout school and will be introduced at the beginning of the week. Our weekly Big Talk subjects fit in with our school topics or something that is happening around the world, enabling us to cover aspects of the curriculum, themes, cooperative values, international links and events, supporting our children on their journey towards "active citizenship."
The plan for the first term, is attached so families can join in at home! Big Talk posters will also be displayed at the front gates and around other outside areas where parents assemble to enable everyone to get involved.
If there are parents with great ideas for a Big talk focus please contact Miss Yousaf, who is leading on this exciting initiative.
