Literacy - Role Play, Reading Aloud and Oral Storytelling



How one primary school's methods boost writing and literacy skills in Key Stage 2 pupils.

At Redlands Primary School in Fareham, Hampshire, Year 6 pupils stage a chat show to explore the feelings of the characters in their book.

Teacher Claire Simmonds explains how ICT, drama, storyboards and oral storytelling help to make pupils secure in their language, before setting pen to paper.

Sue Ellis, from The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education, says that children who are steeped in literature echo this in their writing.
