How do we promote language and communication skills in the Nursery?



In Nursery we are dedicated to promoting language and social communication.   These are the basics skills required for learning.


• Ready, steady, go activities that require children to ask for more

Reception Annual Curriculum Plan

• Offering a choice between two and encouraging a child to orally say one before giving it to them


• The unexpected – putting a hat on hands, putting a banana in a cup


• Adults playing alongside and commentating on play

• Singing nursery rhymes

• Playing cooperatively and negotiate ideas
