Nursery – Useful Links
In EYFS we support the Lancashire Walk and Talk Campaign which is about inspiring families to go outside and communicate with each other.
Talking to young children during everyday activities can help them learn communication skills such as:
- turn taking in a conversation
- learning new words
Being outside is good for their wellbeing as well as your own and in Lancashire we have lots of beautiful places to walk and talk.
We support the Hungry Little Minds campaign which was created to support and encourage parents to engage in activities that support their child’s early learning and help set them up for school and beyond.
Click the link below to their website with lots of ideas to help your child learn by chatting, playing and reading with them.
In Nursery we use the Early Talk Boost Intervention. This is a targeted intervention aimed at 3-4 year old children with delayed language helping to boost their language skills to narrow the gap between them and their peers. The programme aims to accelerate children’s progress in language and communication by an average of 6 months, after a nine week intervention.
