Language For Living

A wealth of inspiring resources for the development of vocabulary and spoken language.

Encourages the application of newly acquired vocabulary to reading and writing activities.

Packed full of ideas, activities, and lesson guides Language for Living; vocabulary at the tip of your tongue is split into two areas: vocabulary acquisition and oral language development. Each area stretches learners and ensures engagement from the entire class. The perfect tool to act as a cross curricular, progressive, whole school programme to help narrow the word gap and, secure strong literacy skills.

‘Spoken language underpins the development of reading and writing,’ states the 2013 National Curriculum. Our whole school programme Language for Living: vocabulary at the tip of your tongue, addresses the increasing understanding of the role vocabulary and oral language development has in children’s success, both within school and in their later lives. The programme provides hundreds of theme-based words-of -the-day, followed by various activities for the intentional teaching of vocabulary with tips, games and writing opportunities to enable pupils to practice their new words and carry them over into reading and writing. The aim is that by the time a pupil leaves primary school, by progressing through the three Language for Living boxes, they will have a bank of vocabulary that has been built upon from their early years at school. Using the other elements of oral language that Language for Living: Tip of the Tongue provides, this new vocabulary is built upon and revised so that pupils retain it.
