Developing Talk for Reading in the EYFS

Developing Talk for reading in the EYFS

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has been working on an Early Years initiative called Talk for Reading and has now produced a resource pack which includes case studies which will inspire and support you in developing good early language and communication practice for young children and their families.

We know that early language development is one of the most important factors in young children’s current and future learning – a lot depends on what they hear, say and do in the first five years of life.

This pack offers practical ideas to support early years practitioners in developing early talking and reading.
