Communication and Language
We have a language-rich environment where children’s play is narrated to support their language development. Children take part in story and song times to encourage them to join in with and respond to what they have heard. The children are encouraged to narrate their own play and to answer why and how questions throughout their learning. Through one to one, small group and whole class discussions the children use talk to explain their thinking and to respond to others ideas.
There is a strong focus on introducing vocabulary and definitions to all children through high quality stories, day to day teaching and our weekly special words.
