Strand 09iii: Language, Literacy, Reading and Grammar ROOM 113 | 10:00 to 10:45

Lyanne Young, Consultant and Education Development Officer, The Training Space


Join Lyanne Young to explore ways to support children as they acquire language, develop vocabulary and begin to construct sentences. Lyanne will share outcomes from her action research project, looking at how to enhance a language rich environment and ways to explicitly extend children’s vocabulary. This session will introduce delegates to the Three Zones of Fantastic Vocabulary Development, demonstrating the key concepts of Word Collector & Sentence Maker. The concepts shared during this session use The FANTASTICs which are a key component of Jane Considine’s systems for teaching reading and writing to primary aged pupils. Practical ideas, anecdotes from real settings and case studies will be used to show the positive impact the FANTASTICs can have in a Reception classroom.
