This video shows practitioners supporting young children’s learning at Sheringham Nursery School and Children’s Centre in east London, a maintained nursery school for children aged two, three and four. The setting works closely with parents and carers and is fully inclusive, with a number of places prioritised for children who have special educational needs and disabilities. As you watch the video, consider how the practitioner supports high-quality interactions to support children’s learning. Specifically:
- Notice how the practitioner gives key vocabulary and then repeats this as the child is moving across the blocks.
- Consider how the practitioner uses single words and signs, then begins to use longer phrases, linked back to and building on previous communication
- Notice how the practitioner looks for communication from the child. How is she responding to their sounds, signs, body language and facial expressions?
