Special Event - Language and Communication Coffee Morning

27 September 2019

On Friday 27th September, our Nursery and Reception parents and carers came together to enjoy a cup of coffee, a cake and to learn more about helping their children with communication.

Kirsty Griffiths, our speech and language therapist, presented lots of tips and ideas for getting your child to develop language, whether that is English or a home language. Kirsty stressed how important it is to play with your child, model words and sentences and not to ask too many questions!

Parents commented afterwards that there was some really good advice and everyone took away some ideas to try at home:

  • I will let my child lead so that he is interested in talking and playing.
  • I will try to be more creative to build up their vocabulary.
  • I will use more choices.
