Talk Time at Wilbury Primary school is an opportunity for children to develop effective habits of thinking. We are providing children with the resourcefulness needed to be emotionally fit and resilient, both inside and out of school.
Talk time is a teaching tool that will enable all children to take part in discussions that will get them thinking about the world around them. Children will be engaged in conversations guided by themselves about big ideas. It also enables all children to develop the skills they need to think, look, listen and concentrate. Placing an importance on thinking as a means of developing learning will allow more children to access more areas of the curriculum. By designating a space for children to think and question they will be able to develop relationships built on trust and communication with their peers.
We want to give children the freedom and confidence to have their voices heard and their imagination’s stretched.
