The Higher Level Language Group aims to help your child to:

  • Understand instructions with three and four key words. This includes position words ‘in’ ‘on’ and ‘under’
  • Understand more difficult questions
  • Use simple sentences with three to four key words
  • Sequence simple stories with pictures
  • The group also introduces visual support and parent strategies.

How to use the videos

The videos are split into two categories:

  • Group Activities
  • Parent Strategies

Click on the headings below to view the videos.
The group activities will give you ideas for fun activities to try at home. These activities will help develop your child’s understanding and talking. Use the resources sent in the homework pack to help with this.

The parent strategies will also help develop your child’s understanding and talking. It might be useful to focus on one strategy at a time.

Talk in your home language

Use your home language during activities and when using a strategy. It is really important that your child learns their home language.

Being able to understand and use their home language will make it easier for your child to learn English.
