    Things we will be exploring this week:

    Please could you bring in up to 6 photographs of your child and your family including any pets.

    Vocabulary Development

    It is estimated that by 6 years of age, children have a vocabulary of 14,000 words. Based on these numbers, children between 18 months and 6 years old would have to learn 8 new words a day. Research has shown that children who have poor vocabulary at 2 years tend to do less well at school by 7 years.

    At Cornerstones, we are a language rich environment but we are now going to introduce focus language linked in with our topics. Our focus words for All About Me and My Family are:
