National Curriculum KS4: Spoken English

Pupils should be taught to:

  • speak confidently, audibly and effectively, including through:
    • using Standard English when the context and audience require it
    • working effectively in groups of different sizes and taking on required roles, including leading and managing discussions, involving others productively, reviewing and summarising, and contributing to meeting goals/deadlines
    • listening to and building on the contributions of others, asking questions to clarify and inform, and challenging courteously when necessary
    • planning for different purposes and audiences, including selecting and organising information and ideas effectively and persuasively for formal spoken presentations and debates
    • listening and responding in a variety of different contexts, both formal and informal, and evaluating content, viewpoints, evidence and aspects of presentation
    • improvising, rehearsing and performing play scripts and poetry in order to generate language and discuss language use and meaning, using role, intonation, tone, volume, mood, silence, stillness and action to add impact.
