Within this training session, participants will gain knowledge of:

  • An overview of typical children’s vocabulary acquisition through the primary school years.
  • An understanding of different reasons why children may struggle with vocabulary acquisition and retention.
  • Strategies to support children’s vocabulary learning in the primary school setting.

It is also hoped that attendees will gain confidence and ideas in ways to support children’s word learning and retention of new words in whole class and small group settings in school.
