Children at St Michael in the Hamlet are taught the skills to be effective communicators through oracy.


These skills include:

  • Being able to tell a story
  • Being able to hold a conversation about a subject of interest
  • Being able to debate and argue a well-researched opinion.


We believe that these skills are as important as written and mathematical learning and so we have raised the profile of speaking in our school.
