Communication and Language
The classroom is a language rich environment in which the children thrive. They are encouraged to speak and listen during every lesson with their designated ‘Talk Partner’, or simply the person next to them. They communicate as they investigate and problem solve and they develop confidence and skills in expressing themselves, which extends their social skills.
There are ‘Show and Share’ opportunities and the children are always encouraged to bring in artefacts from home related to the learning, to then talk about in front of the class. Teachers model excellent language and encourage children to express their thoughts and ideas through conversation, role-play and Circle Time.
