The 'Lets Play' range of minis provides support, guidance and ideas for all practitioners working within early years settings. The mini collection clarifies the importance of providing high quality environments and activities that are planned effectively and are age appropriate.
The language and communication mini enables teachers and practitioners to:
- Realise and explore the importance of the early years teacher and practitioners' role as a critical part of developing children's language and understanding.
- Become a highly effective role model of language and communication, as children will only acquire language when the teacher talks to them as they play during the daily routine.
- Develop a language rich environment that is communication friendly.
- Plan activities that engage, motivate and challenge children through purposeful play and allow children to learn, practise and apply new skills and ideas.
