Speaking and Listening Introduction
Children learn a great deal from other people. As parents and carers you are your child’s first teachers. You have a powerful influence on your child’s early learning.
From a very early age your child will need to experience a wide range of activities and experiences with you to develop their early reading and writing skills, for example singing and saying rhymes, making and listening to music, listening to them and joining in conversations, painting and pretend play. These activities will help your child take the first important steps towards reading and writing.
