What is Oracy?

‘Oracy is our ability to communicate effectively using spoken language. It is the ability to speak eloquently, articulate ideas and thoughts, influence through talking, listen to others and have the confidence to express your views. These are all fundamental skills that support success in both learning and life beyond school. It is purposeful classroom talk which develops children’s speaking and listening skills, and enhances their learning through the effective use of spoken language.
