Communication and Language


The children will be given a variety of opportunities to extend their questioning skills through our topic work.  They enjoy listening to stories and discussions, often making comments and linking these to their own experiences.  Now we would like them to not only comment and answer questions, but to understand how to ask questions in more formal situations that are not always based on their own experiences. 


You can help your child at home by modelling different types of questions during discussions or when reading together (for example ‘when’, ‘why’, ‘who’, ‘how’ or ‘what’).  When reading a story together can you ask your child to come up with a question they would like to ask a character in the story?
