Communication & Language
Children learn through language and this helps them to understand the world around them. Children will engage in a rich and varied experience of opportunities to develop their speaking, understanding and listening skills.
Children will be given the opportunity to use there skills throughout their days in nursery and will be independently challenged to further their skills communicating, this may be questioning what they are explaining, engaging another peer in the conversation or anything else.
Adults within nursery will model communication and language skills, through commenting on what they are doing or are interested in, echoing back what the children say adding new vocabulary for the children to use in future, reading frequently with the children engaging them in stories, rhymes and poems.
Through role play, modelling, support and sensitive questioning children become confident and comfortable to use a rich range of vocabulary in their daily speaking.
