Stories and Rhymes

Read a wide variety of stories with your child.  This is crucial for the development of their vocabulary and general language skills.  It also helps them develop a love of books

Enjoy lots of Nursery Rhymes together and make up your own silly rhymes, even if the words are not real words eg mat – lat, gat
Hopefully these will all be fun.
