Early Language Development

Early Language Development is integral to our approach to Literacy in the EYFS and English in years 1-6. 

Through promoting a love of storytelling and books, as well as facilitating high quality adult interactions, we provide children with the opportunities to explore language and vocabulary in a range of contexts. Children are excited and enthusiastic to use their enriched knowledge of words and take this back into their playing and learning both within and outside of the classroom environment. Adults are tuned into spotting the teachable moments, to draw out ambitious and top-tier vocabulary from high quality texts. 

Please watch the following videos to demonstrate how we record and celebrate language development through literature rich environments and storytelling.
