Language development is a key priority in Nursery. Teachers immerse children in a language-rich environment through speaking and listening, reading a wide range of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and rhymes, and encouraging them to share ideas through conversation, story-telling and role play.
You can support them every step of the way at home with useful articles and Nursery English worksheets, including phonics and letter formation.
