Over the past couple of weeks, Mr Farry, Mr Swarbrick, Mrs Lucas and Mrs Scott have been putting their training skills to the sword by completing ‘Talk for Writing’ techniques gleaned from a recent CPD.
The children use actions for punctuation to read aloud, especially when reading direct speech. This is acting as a real hook for the children, who love making the gestures and accompanying noises!
They are even confident enough the lead the class and play the role of the teacher. Most importantly, they are remembering to use these actions in their writing!
“Well done!” boasted Mr Farry proudly to the class.
Hi, my name is Mr Farry, I still consider myself very much part of a great team in a great school, we really do ALL pull together to ensure the children complete a fantastic and enjoyable curriculum. I am still the P.E coordinator (a veteran now that I’ve joined the over 40s club), and still completely passionate about sport and my role in sport at Park. I am still actively involved external sports (both team and individual) and consider this essentially to maintaining a healthy body and mind. The children will tell you I’m still the jovial and humorous person I was when I joined the school, buy I’m simply four/five years older and ‘hopefully’ a little wiser, albeit with a few stray greys! My classroom is a busy place, with high expectations whilst still maintaining a nurturing environment, especially with the kind and generous Mrs Lucas by my side. The children, thus, continue to feel comfortable and content in their learning environment.
