The Conversational Method

The Conversational Method for Teaching Vocabulary

1. When a new word comes up, provide a simple, age-appropriate definition of the word.
2. Provide one or two examples that makesense to your child.
3. Encourage your child to think of his own example (or the opposite).
4. Use the new word in conversation over the next few days.

How you talk to your child changes their brain

Published on Monday 7 October 2019 by Crook Primary.

How you talk to your child changes their brain

Most parents know that talking to their child helps them develop. But a new study has revealed that it's how you talk to your child that really matters for their brain growth. Rather than just spewing complex words at them, or showing flashcards in the hope of enriching their vocabulary, the key is to engage them in “conversational turns” - in other words, a good old chat.

Diary Dates

We need you to help us!

We are trying hard to improve attendance at school and we need you to do the following things:

  • Attendance drops on a Friday especially before a holiday. Please make sure your child is in school every Friday and does not miss school because you have planned a long weekend.
  • Do not book routine doctors and dentist appointments during school time unless absolutely necessary and bring an appointment card to the office.
  • Holidays will not be granted unless exceptional circumstances. You must apply for leave of absence prior to booking any holiday to see if permission would be granted.
  • Please only keep your child off if they are really ill and not just under the weather. We can always contact you if we feel they need to go home.

Thank you for your continued support in helping us to improve attendance.
