Get Hounslow Reading – Contingent Talk – Nursery/EYs Practitioners

Tue 08 Mar 2022 | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

A Reading-for-Pleasure Project for HEP Primary Schools

These workshops are for teachers who have already registered for the full project.

This is the first of two network sessions for Nursery/Early Years practitioners led by Charlotte Raby.

More details to follow in due course.

What is it?
  • 10 minutes – once a week ‘Contingent talk with a book’ sessions with a trained adult.
  • A simple child- centred approach to language learning through talk contingent on the child’s interest based around a book chosen by the child.
  • At least a term’s commitment to providing ‘Contingent talk with a book’ to each child chosen for the programme.
  • It will also be an opportunity to identify colleagues who will be involved in the training sessions.
  • Shared reading has a positive impact in children’s language development.
  • Dialogic reading styles are more effective at boosting children’s language development than a simple, storytelling narrative style.
  • Interventions based on dialogic reading styles have a positive impact on children’s expressive vocabulary.
