Conversation of the week
This weeks BGPS Conversation of the week is:
Each week we choose a topical news item to discuss as our whole school 'Conversation of the Week'. The new conversation topics are shared with the children on a Monday when they arrive in school using a variety of sources such as photographs, video clips, website links, etc. Throughout the week the children are then given several opportunities to discuss what they know and what they have learnt about the topic with their teachers and friends in small groups and as a whole class.
The aim of this initiative is:
to provide opportunities to develop the conversational skills of speaking and listening;
to increase the children's knowledge and understanding of current and topical issues in the world around them.
Each week the current conversation of the week topic will be posted on this page. Please take a few minutes to talk to your child about the topic at home.
