Speaking and listening – the most important!

  • If they see you listening to them, they will listen back!
  • Encourage them to use the correct grammar! “We was, like, innit, going here like, wasn’t we” is not what we want to encourage!
  • Ask your child questions and don’t settle for a grunt back! If they reply with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ ask them to explain further and elaborate – give detail!

  • Encourage your child to read a variety of books: stories and non-fiction.
  • Ask them questions about what they have read; e.g. What makes you think that? How do you feel about…? Can you explain why…? I wonder why the author chose that word?
