Talk Boost

Talk Boost

During their time in reception, some children have the chance to join in with ‘Talk Boost’. This is a scheme led by Mrs Egner that promotes and encourages children to effectively use different communication skills.  Children take part in a variety of games and activities in a small group setting and we have a Talk Boost gorilla puppet that is used to encourage conversation.  From attending these sessions and increasing their understanding of verbal and non-verbal communication skills, children are developing confidence and are able to access more of the curriculum areas within school.

Children’s thoughts…

Joshua: “I liked bingo and when we play games.”

Maisie: “I liked it when Mrs Egner gave us stickers.”

Henley: “I like giving a Monkey a cuddle.”

We are part of the Bradgate Education Partnership. Click here to take you to the BEP website.
