In school some of the children have been selected to take part in the NELI (Nuffield Early Language Intervention) programme. These children will learn new words and practise their speaking and listening skills in NELI sessions. This page will regularly be updated with vocabulary that has been introduced during each topic. These words can be reinforced at home for children in the NELI group, but also may be useful for all children to work on in Doves Class. Have fun!
Below you will find the topic lists and corresponding vocabulary.
Each week we will highlight in red the words of the week.
We will also now be revisiting the letters and sounds - s, a, t.
We have also been working on constructing a story map and have focused on the vocabulary - who, where, when, what and feelings.
NEW TOPIC: Things we wear
We also work on the names/sequence of the days of the week regularly and have started to work on identifying in the environment - loud quiet
You could play games like 'identify the instruments' or
'match the sound to the animal'.
