Overview

This practical book is based on the influential Thinking Together approach - a special method for developing speaking, listening and thinking skills. It is based on classroom research carried out in schools by the Open University, which has now been integrated into the National Primary Strategy.


Included are twelve lesson plans for whole class and small group work. These have been built around specific learning objectives for speaking and listening, with activities related to literacy, numeracy, science and citizenship.  


At the heart of the lesson plans is the ‘talk box’ - a collection of interesting objects which provide a focus for class discussion. The 'talk box' helps children learn to share information, articulate ideas, reason and solve problems together. In this way, teachers can promote the development of children's language and thinking skills throughout the whole of the Key Stage 1 curriculum.
