The recent I CAN report suggests that over 50% of children in England are starting school with some form of speech and language disability. The EYFS states that 'the development and use of communication and language is at the heart of young children's learning.' This series considers the significant role that the physical environment can play in supporting children's speaking and listening skills; in supporting inquisitive, verbal experimentation, not just answering questions! This book is full of practical ideas that can make a positive difference to developing speaking and listening skills in a KS1 classroom. It explains what environmental factors should be considered in creating 'places to talk' and the bright colour photos show you how you can make these spaces in your classroom.
