Every Child a Talker (ECaT) is a national project to develop the language and communication of children. One of the best things we can do with young children is to have interesting and enjoyable conversations with them. We should make a special effort to answer children's questions, point things out that interest us , involve children in helping and planning what to do next. Every day we have ECaT time where children can share with us what they have been up to at home. This gives the children an opportunity to talk to their peers and build their confidence. We send home optional weekly activities that you could have a go at with your child and then your child can share this (or a photo of this) with their peers. This activities are linked to the learning that we are doing in school. You might want to do one activity or all of them- whatever works for you and your family. Children's work is then displayed on their proud wall.
