KS1/2 English: Literacy and Enjoyment 1
0001 10:00:00:23 10:00:06:04
"..the trains were for a map."
0002 10:00:07:05 10:00:12:08
When you hear politicians or the

media saying it's really disgraceful


0003 10:00:12:08 10:00:16:12
that 20% of children can't read

at the appropriate standard


0004 10:00:16:12 10:00:18:13
when they're 11,
0005 10:00:18:13 10:00:22:06
the tests that are bringing about

these kinds of comments


0006 10:00:22:06 10:00:26:10
are not really examining whether

they can read the print on the page.


0007 10:00:26:10 10:00:30:20
They're examining or testing

quite fine responses


0008 10:00:30:20 10:00:35:19
to children's ability to interpret

meanings from what they read.


0009 10:00:37:02 10:00:39:19
(narrator) Reading for

understanding and enjoyment


0010 10:00:39:19 10:00:42:00
is the focus of

Olivia O'Sullivan's work


0011 10:00:42:00 10:00:44:13
at the Centre for

Literacy in Primary Education


0012 10:00:44:13 10:00:46:22
and their Power of Reading project.

0013 10:00:46:22 10:00:50:18

They work with teachers to develop

ways of involving children in books


0014 10:00:50:18 10:00:55:20
and stories, as a way of raising

standards as well as enjoyment.


0015 10:00:55:20 10:00:58:23
Last year's project group

included Catherine Gdula.


0016 10:00:58:23 10:01:02:13
Last year, I was involved in

the whole Power of Reading project


0017 10:01:02:13 10:01:06:14
and that, basically,

completely changed my whole idea


0018 10:01:06:14 10:01:08:22
of how I teach literacy.
0019 10:01:08:22 10:01:12:11
I tend to spend quite a long time

on each of the texts


0020 10:01:12:11 10:01:15:02
because there's so much

you can do around it.


0021 10:01:15:02 10:01:17:12
The last book we did was "Beegu".
0022 10:01:17:12 10:01:21:07
One of the ways of getting the

children to think about the story


0023 10:01:21:07 10:01:24:16
is to make sure

that they know the story well.


0024 10:01:24:16 10:01:29:08
So one of the things we did

was get them to retell the story


0025 10:01:29:08 10:01:31:14
by making up their own "Beegu" book.
0026 10:01:31:14 10:01:33:23
They took turns to do

illustrations and writing.


0027 10:01:33:23 10:01:38:09
They talked about what happened on

each page and what they would write.

0028 10:01:38:09 10:01:40:15

We looked really closely

at this picture


0029 10:01:40:15 10:01:43:05
and we thought about

this little girl here


0030 10:01:43:05 10:01:47:02
should've gone to get the teacher

because Beegu was in the playground.


0031 10:01:47:02 10:01:50:08
So lots of different ideas

came out of that,


0032 10:01:50:08 10:01:53:11
where they really think about

not just the main character,


0033 10:01:53:11 10:01:55:21
but the other characters

in the story


0034 10:01:55:21 10:01:58:18
and what their reason

for doing things might be.


0035 10:01:58:18 10:02:02:04
How she's feeling on the inside,
0036 10:02:02:04 10:02:05:23
drawings of where we think

Beegu might come from.


0037 10:02:05:23 10:02:09:24
So what her planet might look like

and who might be there


0038 10:02:09:24 10:02:12:18
and where they might live.
0039 10:02:12:18 10:02:16:21
(narrator) Today, 2G are starting

work on the book "Grace & Family".


0040 10:02:16:21 10:02:19:12
They've met the main character

in an earlier book.


0041 10:02:19:12 10:02:21:20
They're going to put themselves

in her shoes.


0042 10:02:21:20 10:02:25:24
(Catherine) We had a look at a book

all about Amazing Grace.

0043 10:02:25:24 10:02:29:15

And then we thought about

everything we found out about Grace.


0044 10:02:29:15 10:02:34:17
The first thing I did was thought

about what we'd learnt about Grace


0045 10:02:34:17 10:02:37:14
and we went over all the things

that we know about her.


0046 10:02:37:14 10:02:40:19
We find out

she likes making up stories.


0047 10:02:40:19 10:02:45:04
She likes watching the ballet and

she has lost her two front teeth.


0048 10:02:45:04 10:02:48:07
- How did we find that out?

- You can tell in the picture.


0049 10:02:48:07 10:02:52:24
(Catherine) You see in the picture.

We're going to read another story.


0050 10:02:52:24 10:02:58:15
And then we read the first

two pages of "Grace & Family".


0051 10:02:58:15 10:03:03:22
It's one of the books recommended

by the Power of Reading project.


0052 10:03:03:22 10:03:08:07
The books which they've recommended

have always engaged the children


0053 10:03:08:07 10:03:11:23
and got them thinking about
0054 10:03:11:23 10:03:14:21
a lot of issues and ideas

that come out of books.


0055 10:03:14:21 10:03:20:13
"Grace lived with her Ma and Nana

and a cat called Paw-Paw."


0056 10:03:20:13 10:03:24:13
"Next to her family,

what Grace liked best..."


0057 10:03:24:13 10:03:27:11

(Olivia) She was reading

the book aloud to children.

0058 10:03:27:11 10:03:32:15
We see that as essential for

children to be drawn into the book,


0059 10:03:32:15 10:03:35:16
to feel enthusiastic

about the story.


0060 10:03:35:16 10:03:39:02
And, for all children, whether

they can read the book or not,


0061 10:03:39:02 10:03:43:10
to actually hear the words

on the page read by a teacher


0062 10:03:43:10 10:03:46:09
is actually giving

a real tune to the story.


0063 10:03:46:09 10:03:50:09
(Catherine) "'..how we split up

and your Papa went back to Africa.'"


0064 10:03:50:09 10:03:52:20
"'He has another family now,
0065 10:03:52:20 10:03:55:01
but he's still your father.'"
0066 10:03:55:01 10:03:59:07
Using texts like this helps

you to deal with a lot of issues


0067 10:03:59:07 10:04:03:00
which the children

might have inside their heads,


0068 10:04:03:00 10:04:06:20
but have maybe never really had

an avenue or a voice


0069 10:04:06:20 10:04:09:05
to... to say it.
0070 10:04:09:05 10:04:13:00
"'Guess what? Your Papa

sent the money for two tickets


0071 10:04:13:00 10:04:17:08
to visit him

in Africa for the Easter holidays.'"


0072 10:04:17:08 10:04:21:00

"'Nana says she'll go with you

if you want.'"

0073 10:04:21:00 10:04:23:20
"She had made up

so many fathers for herself,


0074 10:04:23:20 10:04:28:24
she had forgotten

what the real one was like."


0075 10:04:29:24 10:04:33:00
OK. I'm not gonna read any more.
0076 10:04:33:00 10:04:36:05
(Catherine) I think that's

a great way to use a text.


0077 10:04:36:05 10:04:39:02
You don't dive in

and use the whole book straight away


0078 10:04:39:02 10:04:42:14
because it means

that the children are also


0079 10:04:42:14 10:04:46:18
really looking forward

to what's going to happen next.


0080 10:04:46:18 10:04:52:11
Does anybody have any ideas as to

what we could add now to our chart?


0081 10:04:52:11 10:04:56:08
Have we found out

anything new about Grace?


0082 10:04:56:08 10:05:00:11
- Rachel?

- Her papa split up with her mum.


0083 10:05:00:11 10:05:02:18
- Brilliant.

- Then he went back to Africa.


0084 10:05:02:18 10:05:08:10
Her father lives in Africa so

she doesn't really get to see him.


0085 10:05:08:10 10:05:13:01
She had two tickets from

her father to go to Africa.


0086 10:05:13:01 10:05:20:04
Brilliant. Now, I imagined I was

writing in Grace's diary as Grace.


0087 10:05:20:04 10:05:23:07

I wrote a really short

diary entry as Grace

0088 10:05:23:07 10:05:26:11
before she got

the tickets from her father.


0089 10:05:26:11 10:05:30:17
That was a way of getting children

thinking about getting into role


0090 10:05:30:17 10:05:32:17
and writing diary entries.
0091 10:05:32:17 10:05:36:24
Although we've done it before this

year, it is a relatively new idea.


0092 10:05:36:24 10:05:41:07
I wanted to show them a model of it

first before we started our own.


0093 10:05:41:07 10:05:44:18
"Maybe my Papa

would be kind and helpful."


0094 10:05:44:18 10:05:49:04
"I wish I knew

what he was really like."


0095 10:05:49:04 10:05:52:09
Get them to be that person

in the book and it becomes real,


0096 10:05:52:09 10:05:56:04
it becomes meaningful, it becomes

something that they want to do


0097 10:05:56:04 10:05:58:21
and that they want to

find out more about.


0098 10:05:58:21 10:06:01:21
Why do you think

Grace might want to keep a diary?


0099 10:06:01:21 10:06:03:05
Jonas?
0100 10:06:03:05 10:06:07:07
Because you've got something

important in there.


0101 10:06:07:07 10:06:09:24
- (Catherine) Important in where?

- In her head.


0102 10:06:09:24 10:06:13:22
In her head. What does she want

to do with that thing in her head?

0103 10:06:13:22 10:06:16:03

- Keep it.

- She wants to keep it.


0104 10:06:16:03 10:06:20:11
She wants to write it down to keep

it so that she can read it. Good.


0105 10:06:20:11 10:06:24:23
We thought about how Grace would be

feeling, getting the plane ticket.


0106 10:06:24:23 10:06:27:17
The children were put into pairs.
0107 10:06:27:17 10:06:31:02
One of you is Ma,
0108 10:06:31:02 10:06:34:14
and one of you is Grace.
0109 10:06:34:14 10:06:39:03
And they were re-enacting

the moment when Grace's mum


0110 10:06:39:03 10:06:41:14
gave her - or her Ma -

gave her the ticket.


0111 10:06:41:14 10:06:45:14
How would she be feeling inside

about getting this ticket?


0112 10:06:45:14 10:06:50:08
I want you to also show me

on your face how you're feeling.


0113 10:06:50:08 10:06:54:11
Looking around, you could tell

the children were thinking a lot


0114 10:06:54:11 10:06:57:21
just by what

they were doing with their faces.


0115 10:06:59:03 10:07:03:04
They were looking shocked and they

were like, "I'm going to Africa."


0116 10:07:03:04 10:07:06:21
I think that's a really good way

of starting them off thinking about


0117 10:07:06:21 10:07:09:11
the thought of going away

to see her father.

0118 10:07:09:11 10:07:11:23

It's a package for you.
0119 10:07:11:23 10:07:14:15
What if my Papa's got a new family?
0120 10:07:16:07 10:07:19:15
- Uh...

- How would I feel then?


0121 10:07:20:11 10:07:24:21
I think using the plane tickets and

picture was a good way of starting,


0122 10:07:24:21 10:07:29:16
getting them to think, doing

something happening in the story.


0123 10:07:29:16 10:07:34:11
You're helping children to step

inside the story through role play,


0124 10:07:34:11 10:07:36:06
through talking to each other.
0125 10:07:36:06 10:07:40:02
(Catherine) You're going to be Ma

and you're going to be Grace, OK?


0126 10:07:40:02 10:07:44:10
Acting out was a really good way

of getting them to think about


0127 10:07:44:10 10:07:48:24
the ideas and Grace's thoughts of

going, before we started writing.


0128 10:07:48:24 10:07:52:22
What we're going to do now

is come back to the carpet


0129 10:07:52:22 10:07:58:13
and then we're gonna talk about

all the ideas that you came up with.


0130 10:07:58:13 10:08:02:02
We wrote down and brainstormed

Grace's ideas on going to Africa


0131 10:08:02:02 10:08:04:11
and wrote them

in our class journal.


0132 10:08:04:11 10:08:07:12
How is she feeling

about visiting her dad in Africa?

0133 10:08:07:12 10:08:09:00

- Happy.

- Shocked.


0134 10:08:09:00 10:08:11:22
- Happy.

- A bit sad.


0135 10:08:11:22 10:08:14:06
- Excited.

- A little bit confused.


0136 10:08:14:06 10:08:16:06
(Catherine)

Confused. Great word!


0137 10:08:16:06 10:08:18:23
(Olivia) Teachers

and children benefit


0138 10:08:18:23 10:08:22:13
from sequences of activities

that are coherent.


0139 10:08:22:13 10:08:26:04
So that the writing that you do

and the discussions that you have


0140 10:08:26:04 10:08:29:09
and the books you hear read aloud

are all linked together,


0141 10:08:29:09 10:08:33:02
so all the time

you're going in deeper.


0142 10:08:33:02 10:08:36:00
(Catherine) Then we did

a shared write on the board.


0143 10:08:36:00 10:08:41:00
I tried to use the children's ideas

to write a diary entry


0144 10:08:41:00 10:08:45:10
about how Grace was feeling

having received the plane ticket


0145 10:08:45:10 10:08:47:10
and the thought

of going to Africa.


0146 10:08:47:10 10:08:52:00
- How are we going to start it off?

- I've got tickets to go to Africa.


0147 10:08:52:00 10:08:55:10
(Catherine) Great.

So should we say, "Today..."?


0148 10:08:55:10 10:08:57:13
"Today is the best time of my life."

0149 10:08:57:13 10:08:59:24

"Today is the best day of my life"?
0150 10:08:59:24 10:09:03:21
"Because, um, I'm going to..."
0151 10:09:03:21 10:09:06:17
(Catherine) "To see..."
0152 10:09:06:17 10:09:08:21
"..my Papa."
0153 10:09:08:21 10:09:11:17
(Catherine) Now, have we

got a sentence there?


0154 10:09:11:17 10:09:14:02
Yes. So what do I need to do now?
0155 10:09:14:02 10:09:16:08
- Full stop.

- Thank you, Jonas.


0156 10:09:16:08 10:09:20:15
"I don't know what he's like,

so I'm a bit worried what he's..."


0157 10:09:20:15 10:09:24:20
"I feel a bit cross because, um...
0158 10:09:24:20 10:09:28:04
um, my mum can't come with me."
0159 10:09:28:04 10:09:30:12
We'll first act it out,

then talk about it


0160 10:09:30:12 10:09:33:16
and then we'll model

what's been done already.


0161 10:09:33:16 10:09:36:20
And then, hopefully, they get to

a point where they're like:


0162 10:09:36:20 10:09:39:23
"I've got so many ideas,

I just want to start writing."


0163 10:09:39:23 10:09:42:03
That is what happened,

a lot of them.


0164 10:09:42:03 10:09:45:10
They got back, opened up

their books and started writing.


0165 10:09:45:10 10:09:49:04

I can see some beautiful writing

going on here.

0166 10:09:49:04 10:09:52:11
You're really thinking about this.

Well done.


0167 10:09:53:12 10:09:55:18
They're very mixed, ability-wise.
0168 10:09:55:18 10:10:00:13
There's some children who need a bit

more support and some are flying.


0169 10:10:00:13 10:10:02:13
I think that happens in every class.
0170 10:10:02:13 10:10:04:13
What can her dad be?
0171 10:10:04:13 10:10:07:03
Her dad can be, um...
0172 10:10:07:03 10:10:09:21
He's a man and he can drive.
0173 10:10:09:21 10:10:13:07
You've talked about so many ideas

which have arisen from the text


0174 10:10:13:07 10:10:16:14
that they're not really ever

in that situation


0175 10:10:16:14 10:10:20:13
where they're dry for ideas

and not sure what to do.


0176 10:10:22:10 10:10:23:22
"Dear Diary."
0177 10:10:23:22 10:10:28:10
"I am... feeling sad."
0178 10:10:28:10 10:10:30:18
"I am confused."
0179 10:10:30:18 10:10:33:12
(Olivia) There's concern

about children's writing.


0180 10:10:33:12 10:10:37:03
Although this project may appear

to be just about enjoyment,


0181 10:10:37:03 10:10:40:13
it certainly isn't. It's about

very important areas of learning.


0182 10:10:40:13 10:10:43:05

And I know this

also from my research,

0183 10:10:43:05 10:10:45:15
as children wrote longer pieces.
0184 10:10:45:15 10:10:49:07
The quality of their spelling

and punctuating improved.


0185 10:10:49:07 10:10:51:16
"Dear Diary."
0186 10:10:51:16 10:10:54:07
"I...
0187 10:10:54:07 10:10:56:05
am..."
0188 10:10:56:05 10:10:57:24
"I am..."
0189 10:10:57:24 10:11:01:12
(Olivia) You can tell

through the quality of the writing


0190 10:11:01:12 10:11:04:24
that emerges from

these kinds of activities,


0191 10:11:04:24 10:11:07:16
that real learning is taking place.
0192 10:11:07:16 10:11:13:01
"Dear Diary. I am a bit scared

of meeting my Papa because I..."


0193 10:11:13:01 10:11:16:23
(Catherine) I'll read out some so

we can share all the great writing.


0194 10:11:16:23 10:11:19:13
I read out some of

the children's diary entries


0195 10:11:19:13 10:11:23:20
and then asked other children

in the class to comment positively


0196 10:11:23:20 10:11:27:00
on what they'd read

or what they'd heard in the diary.


0197 10:11:27:00 10:11:30:19
When I'm reading it out,

I want you to think carefully


0198 10:11:30:19 10:11:35:11

about what in the diary

is really good.

0199 10:11:35:11 10:11:38:10
"Dear Diary. I feel a bit scared."
0200 10:11:38:10 10:11:43:00
"It's not normal

that I get to go there."


0201 10:11:43:00 10:11:47:22
"I don't know what he looks like

and what it might feel like."


0202 10:11:47:22 10:11:49:15
"Dangerous, maybe."
0203 10:11:49:15 10:11:53:13
"I think I'm going.

I've got a ticket."


0204 10:11:53:13 10:11:56:20
"Grace." Isn't that great?
0205 10:11:56:20 10:12:01:14
She doesn't know what it's gonna

feel like cos she hasn't been yet.


0206 10:12:01:14 10:12:07:06
I liked it when he added in, "I'm

going to Africa in three hours."


0207 10:12:07:06 10:12:10:15
It's something that helps to

raise the whole ethos in the class,


0208 10:12:10:15 10:12:13:00
where they're celebrating

each other's work


0209 10:12:13:00 10:12:17:15
and feeling really motivated and

inspired by each other, hopefully.


0210 10:12:17:15 10:12:19:24
(woman) What do you think

might happen?


0211 10:12:19:24 10:12:22:05
She might make new friends

in Africa.


0212 10:12:22:05 10:12:24:08
And go to a new school.
0213 10:12:24:08 10:12:27:08
And Mama comes to Africa
0214 10:12:27:08 10:12:33:06
and they live with their Papa

in Africa happily ever after.

0215 10:12:33:06 10:12:36:02

The way that they were

able to express themselves


0216 10:12:36:02 10:12:40:06
and how they were able to connect

with themes that came up in the book


0217 10:12:40:06 10:12:44:12
was just really

a lovely thing to be a part of.


0218 10:12:44:12 10:12:48:18
OK. I'll leave this here, and

just add your own ideas in pencil.


0219 10:12:48:18 10:12:49:24
Great.
0220 10:12:49:24 10:12:54:07
Before, I might have just read

a book for half an hour at the end


0221 10:12:54:07 10:12:58:00
and then said, "OK, bye.

Go home. See you tomorrow",


0222 10:12:58:00 10:13:02:08
and not talk about it, which

just seems ridiculous to me now


0223 10:13:02:08 10:13:08:24
because... the benefit of using

good quality texts with children


0224 10:13:08:24 10:13:11:14
is just amazing.
0225 10:13:11:14 10:13:14:08
You just find out more

about them as people,


0226 10:13:14:08 10:13:17:02
but I think it's also

a really great way


0227 10:13:17:02 10:13:21:24
of forming more of a bond or

a relationship with your class.


0228 10:13:21:24 10:13:24:23
It feels really strange

to say it can all come from a book,


0229 10:13:24:23 10:13:27:06
but it really can.

0230 10:13:27:06 10:13:34:00
(girl) "I am worried

that my Papa is going to be..."


0231 10:13:34:00 10:13:37:08
But I couldn't fit

anything else in.
