Communication & Language:
Talk is incredibly important, please take time to talk to your child everyday - encouraging use of questions and the use of full sentences. This could just be during family routines such as cooking dinner, eating lunch or going for a walk.
The use of FULL sentences is really important. For example rather than giving one word answers encourage children to use more detail when speaking.
It is important to keep looking at books and reading stories daily. Have a selection of books available all the time. Model looking at books, turning the pages. Look at the Oxford Owl website (link below) to find e-books for 3-4 year olds.
Sing familiar nursery rhymes. Click on the link below to access to lots of nursery rhymes we sing in school.
Practice recognising and writing your name. PLEASE do not write names in capital letters. This is how we form our letters at Lakey Lane (see below)
