On Wednesday we had a 'Talk assembly' where we discussed, questioned, collaborated and engaged with each other on the topic of British Values.

At St. Aidan's we teach oracy explicitly and create talk-rich classrooms supported by skilled teachers building high quality dialogue and thinking. We set high expectations for our students as orators and expose them to a wide variety of contexts for speaking in front of each other across every aspect of the curriculum.

Our talk assemblies are part of our whole school oracy culture.
