Communication and Language

This is made up of the following aspects:

Listening and Attention: This is about how children develop their skills in to tuning into sounds and language around them and their ability to focus and concentrate on things that are happening around them.

Understanding: This is about how children make sense of language and talk to communicate with others, to relate to other people and to follow instructions and stories.

Speaking: This is about how children develop their ability to use a rich variety of words, language and talk to express themselves. It is how they become able to make themselves understood by others and grow in confidence with these skills.
