We have been working hard at Norton Fitzwarren School to become better learners.

We talk a lot at Norton! Sometimes talk can help us learn, sometime talk is unhelpful. We have been thinking about helpful and unhelpful talk in our classrooms. 


These are the examples of helpful talk...

  • asking for help
  • sharing ideas
  • asking questions
  • saying please and thank you politely
  • helping others if they are stuck
  • explaining an answer.



These are the examples of unhelpful talk...

  • talking about things that are not to do with your learning
  • interrupting
  • shouting out
  • answering back
  • being unkind to others.
