Communication and Language

Development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Ideas to support learning at home:

  • Always talk encouragingly and positively about school.

  • Model good listening skills i.e. looking at the speaker, waiting your turn to talk, asking questions.

  • Include your child in conversations and give them time to speak.

  • Share in interest in what your child is doing and share your interests with them.

  • Explain new or unfamiliar vocabulary and give your child the opportunity to use it.
