At this stage, they need to listen, understand more and share their ideas within the classroom. They will use their language skills to help them learn to read.
As part their language development at this age, your child will speak in increasingly complex sentences by joining small sentences together using words like ‘and’ or ‘because’.
By five years, your child will begin to use many different sentence types. For example, they will be able to say both ‘The dog was chasing the cat’ and ‘The cat was chased by the dog’ to mean the same thing. And your child will be able to use long sentences of up to nine words.
