- English and Literacy - Listening and talking
When I engage with others, I know when and how to listen, when to talk, how much to say, when to ask questions and how to respond with respect.
I am exploring how pace, gesture, expression, emphasis and choice of words are used to engage others and I can use what I learn.
I can show my understanding of what I listen to or watch by responding to and asking different kinds of questions.
I can recognise how the features of the spoken language can help in communication, and I can recognise different features of my own and others’ spoken language.
When I engage with others, I can make a relevant contribution, encourage others to contribute and acknowledge that they have the right to hold a different opinion. I can respond in ways appropriate to my role and use contributions to reflect on, clarify or adapt thinking.
