Time to talk

Free

"Time to Talk" is a research-based approach to promoting and developing communication skills for children.  Dobcroft EYFS has been following and developing this programme since September 2016 with notable and quantifiable improvement in both children's achievements and practitioners' confidence.
Zoe will discuss how each day time is dedicated to following children's interests,  and will set out specific strategies and questioning techniques that can be employed to sustain and extend both peer-to-peer and adult-peer conversation.  This approach has benefited the learning of all children. EAL learners, in particular, have shown accelerated progress especially in writing.

The fundamental belief  is that language and communication is the bedrock for all other learning...if we get this right at a young age then children will grow to be confident, articulate, life-long learners.
