At SJB, we strive to promote exploratory talk in our classrooms by:

1 – Establishing rules for classroom talk


2 – Using sentence stems and talking frames

3 – Choosing the right ‘talking points’ and employing ‘talk roles’

4 – Asking high-quality questions, and expecting students to respond in full sentences

More information about these oracy strategies, can be found on our L&T Website –


Staff and students can access the talk roles via the Learning Tools app on the iPads.
