Communication and Language

We are working hard to achieve the Early Learning Goal for Communication and Language.

C&L Listening & Attention

Children listen attentively in a range of situations.

They listen to stories, accurately anticipating key events & respond to what they hear with relevant comments, questions or actions.

They give their attention to what others say & respond appropriately, while engaged in another.

C&L Understanding

Children follow instructions involving several ideas or actions.

They answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experiences and in response to stories or events.

C&L Speaking

Children express themselves effectively, showing awareness of listeners’ needs.

They use past, present & future forms accurately when talking about events that have happened or are to happen in the future.

They develop their own narratives and explanations by connecting ideas or events.
