Helen's Blog - November
Published: 8th November 2012
'We had a whole team meeting at work, last week, which gave me the welcome opportunity to catch up with our Early Years team.
They have now been working in our local Children Centres for several years, and have always used the Language Through Listening pack (WIG2) as part of their core service.
I joined in a conversation with our fabulous assistants, who were talking about the excellent outcomes they are achieving with the children who have accessed the Language Through Listening groups. They remarked that the children were much more focused and there had been a positive impact on the development of their expressive language.
Another positive comment was that the parents really liked it too. It was easy for them to learn and carry out the activities, and they were seeing improvement in both their children’s language development and behaviour.
This established pack was revised by Black Sheep Press and Judith Carey, the author, last year. The pack contains a wide range of activities with clear instructions, picture resources and sample sessions. So if you need a simple, functional and successful programme for 3 – 5 year olds, you don’t need to look too far!'
