  • All activities are easy to fit in to the daily classroom programme, and each activity has a clear aim, simple instructions, and requires minimal equipment.

  • The book is user friendly and accessible, not only for teachers and speech & language therapists, but also for teaching assistants and volunteers

  • Incorporates opportunities for assessment, target setting and evaluation and includes photocopiable material to support the activities.

  • Promotes the skills outlined in the speaking and listening section of the National Curriculum English Key Stage One.

    This is an attractive and innovative resource that should find its place in every Reception and Key Stage One classroom, and on the shelf of every Speech and Language Therapist working collaboratively with schools.
