Big Talk images will be put on the blog on a Thursday(27th November) for the following Friday (6th December). The idea is to talk about what you can see happening in the picture.
Can you think of a sentence or two to describe what you can see?
Big Talk homework is directly linked to our Big Talk Café where reception and some year 5 and 6’s will gather to talk about the thought provoking photograph (over a drink and a snack). We know the positive effect talk homework has on children’s writing, and they are always full of ideas to be written on the blog by their buddy. As we know if children cannot talk in complex sentences with WOW! Words then they will not be able to write it down. We really believe talk is the basis of writing.
All we ask is that on a Thursday afternoon/ evening you sit down with your child and discuss their talk homework and post their ideas on our blog. This will ensure our Big Talk Café is brimming with chat and excellent ideas.
