UKLA Viewpoints: Vocabulary

  • Successful language development is supported by purposeful exposure to words in a language rich environment.
  • Increased awareness of the power of words can help in making choices about language use.
  • Opportunities to hear and experiment with new vocabulary can support reading and writing.
  • Vocabulary will take root when children have opportunities to use newly learned words in writing, poetry, drama or talk.
  • Bilingual/multilingual children have rich resources for vocabulary development.
