Simple, fun activities to support Communication and Language

“Children take everything in. They love it when you chat, play and read with them, even when they’re too young to understand everything.” Hungry Little Minds Website 2022


You can turn almost anything into a game. And every little thing you do together will help set them up nicely for the day they start school.


BBC Nursery Rhymes

“Nursery rhymes provide bite-sized learning opportunities for young children to develop key developmental skills and can often be the trigger for hours of creative and open-ended play. They are a powerful learning source in early literacy and enable children to become interested in the rhythm and patterns of language.” Pacey Blog 2019
