'Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding' Proverbs 2:2
At St. Joseph's, we believe that everyone has a life story! Our Throne of Words develops oracy and communication by developing the children's questioning skills.
The Throne is occupied by invited guests, who often have links to our school or local area. The children research the guest and prepare questions in order to gain as much knowledge as they can about the person in the seat. We encourage the children to ask secondary and tertiary questions to really probe the interviewee and gather as much information about the fascinating lives our guests have lived...no question is off limits! We believe this also builds aspiration and ambition in our children as many of our guests are past pupils, who have achieved great things!
If you know of anyone with a story to tell, or even fancy it yourself, then please do get in touch. We love to highlight to children all of the different paths and possibilities that life takes us on.
