Effective communication skills are vital to a child’s success in all aspects of learning and the importance of spoken language is highlighted in both the EYFS (ELG 03 Speaking) and the English National Curriculum. All of the resources within this range promote talk throughout a setting and will help children learn to express themselves and their ideas clearly among their peers and adults.
These innovative resources offer a wide variety of engaging language games enabling children to find their voice by exploring rhythm and rhyme, steady beat and popular stories. They will also help to identify and support shy and reluctant talkers and those with specific speech and language needs. Written by experienced practitioners including Michael Jones, Maggie Johnson, Judith Twani and Ros Bayley, this collection offers practical guidance and support to the practitioner, ensuring every child becomes a confident communicator.
