Talking partners

Post by caffeine needed on Tue Sep 18, 2012 5:56 pm

Talking partners was originally devised by bradford equality and diversity service for use with children with eal it is now used for all children. I personally have had alot of success with this. It is designed to be used in small groups (3 or 4 children) and is a ten week programme with three 20 minute sessions a week, however I have also had considerable success just using one or two sessions a week for 15 mins. groups are usually made up of two or three quiet children with sp and lang. difficulties and another who has a little more 'umph' but not so much that they overshadow the others!
thye aim of the programme is to develop the sp & lang of the children in a small setting which improves their confidence and as the content can be related to anything the ch will or are doing in school be it lit, num or science can also give the ch. pre-teaching on a subject which means they can join in whole class loessons with more confidence.
children are assessed at the start of the programme using the renfrew picture test and again at the end. The vairious frameworks available include 'newstalk' barrier games and reporting back, the last framework I find particularly useful when asking l.a. children to review what they have learnt especially in science and d.t. evaluation. The frameworks supplied are age and ability appropriate

Hi CN. I had Talking Partners training a few years ago and a quick 'top up' a few weeks ago. I am about to start the programme with 3 year 5 children (one is EAL) but am struggling to get it in my head where to start. I have all the resources (the file etc) but their class is currently looking at 'Persuasive Text' (adverts) at the moment and I can't think how to bring this in to the programme. Any ideas to kick start me off would be much appreciated!
Thanks so much

I have run this with year 3 children but not for about 3 years now as there hasn't been the time! I assume you are sorted now as I am so late to reply. Hope it all went well  Very Happy
