At St Antony's communication plays a key role in our curriculum.
Our curriculum encourages the children to develop their vocabulary through each topic. Children are introduced to new vocabulary linked to the topic they will be learning, by taking part in various word learning activities.
Speaking and Listening activities are embedded through careful planning and children are given opportunities to develop their communication skills through a wide range of subjects.
Communicate in Print
At St Antony's we use Communicate in Print (CIP www.widgit.com) to support teaching children how to learn new words.
CIP is also used for words linked to the topic, visual timetables and labelling areas within the classroom environment.
