A selection of our Year 1 children have been making great progress with their weekly Chitter Chatter sessions. This is a special time in the week where we help any pupils needing support with English as an Additional Language.
Working in small groups, the children are encouraged to share conversations. We start off these sessions by looking the Chitter Chatter box. This contains many magical surprises!
Each class member is encouraged to choose an item. We then Chitter Chatter, sharing our thoughts and observations. Recent examples have included a whistle, a carousel and a bubble timer. The Year 1 pupils have been talking about the materials, how the object might work and what we use it for.
A weekly diary is then kept to help the children remember all of their thoughts. You can watch a short clip from a recent Year 1 Chitter Chatter session in the video above.
