General Revision

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.

Literacy:

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.
