School Aim: We will ensure that children are provided with a creative and challenging curriculum that is child centred and relevant and ensures that children can
communicate in different settings, in both English and Welsh.
LA Strategies: Raising Standards for FSM Girls more able
National Priorities: Raising Standards in FSM
Target:

    1. Improve oracy, spelling and presentation skills for learners to including public speaking and audience awareness in English and Welsh.

                                                                                                                                                                Page 6 of 35
Learner Input LLC team

To Improve our Speaking and listening and presentation skills in Welsh and English:

       Making Welsh fun to learn through games.
       Build up confidence when speaking to a class or in assembly.
       We would like to work on changing voice levels.
       Help on how to be a good listener.

School Ambassadors

As School Ambassadors we will listen to what learners have to say, speak up about things that are important to the learners and tell them about their rights.
We are focussing on 6 rights, some of which include:
1. All children have rights no matter what.

2. Your right to learn and go to school.

3. Your right to be the best you can be.

Learner Evaluation
Towards the end of the Autumn Term, as a LLC team we went around the school asking pupils what they would like to learn and improve in Language, Literacy and
Communication. We made a PowerPoint of the results that included a bar graph about the most and least popular ideas for learning. Our focus was the genres that they
would like to learn more. We presented to the whole school in assembly and explained the targets. We also presented this information at the Torfaen Head Teacher
Conference, to Governors and at our school Peer Review. We also worked with staff on the policy poster for LLC and presented it in assembly for the pupils to see. This
really helped our confidence to grow when speaking to an audience. We had to project our voices loudly and clearly so that everyone could hear us. We’ve developed our
listening skills because we have listened to each other's ideas in a group and to other pupils in classes. Our next step is to go back around the classes and ask the pupils if
they have learnt more based on their targets and take pictures for evidence. (Reported by the LLC team, Sparkle Spies, School Ambassadors and the School Council)

Learner Evaluation

In assembly we spoke about the daily mile and we have encouraged classes to do it daily. After lunch we do mindfulness in some classes to focus and meditate,
this helps us concentrate on our lessons for the afternoon. In classes we write down our ideas for the topics each term to decide the climb and sparkle for
lessons, we then create our lessons using them. As School Ambassadors we have worked with the School Council to encourage the pupils in FP and KS2
classes to eat a piece of fruit or vegetable every day at tuck time. In Spring term, we designed charts for each class to record how many pupils brought pieces of
fruit or vegetables each day. Before half term we collected the charts, we added the ticks and calculated the percentages. We then went around the classes and
told them their percentages, so they knew what they were to improve upon. Next, we had a meeting with Mrs Roche and told her about the results of the charts
from tuck time and we asked if we could have a healthy day for the winning classes. (Reported by the LLC and Health and Wellbeing team, Sparkle Spies,

We have used the new climbing wall as part of our PE sessions, and we are taking part in forest school and gardening sessions. Some classes have set up
outdoor learning zones such as role play and independent art areas. We had a disco to raise money for breakfast club. We ordered some different games and
craft activities for after breakfast, this has made children happier and learning skills such as taking in turns and learning rules. We have worked on our team
building skills, strength, athletics and concentration through the new equipment at playtime. The school council had a stall at the Christmas Fayre and are
going to use the money raised for the winners of the healthy tuck chart. (Reported by the LLC team, Health and Wellbeing team, Sparkle Spies, School
