Fun and simple activities to help young children learn and be ready for school

The Early Words Together (EWT) at 3 and 4 programme delivered in partnership by The National Literacy Trust and Southwark Family Hubs and Start for Life programme and provides you with a FREE toolkit of all the information you need to successfully run family sessions

It will:

• Build the practitioners understanding of the communication, language and literacy development of three and four year olds and the importance of the home learning environment (HLE)

• Help to share key activities and information with parents

• Provide parents with confidence and activity ideas to support their child’s development at home and get ready for school


Summary - The term ‘home learning environment’ (HLE) is used to describe any learning activity a child engages in at home. The aim is to model behaviours and encourage parents to engage in positive conversations, and activities that develop children’s listening, understanding and speaking skills.

The National Literacy Trust will co-deliver the main training and information day on  October 17th 2023 - 10:00-15:00

This will then be followed by 6 x 2 hour activity and support sessions (1-6) delivered by Jo Gould during October and November which will be a mixture of in person and online support. There is no obligation to attend all of the sessions, practitioners can choose to attend one or all of the below, however, if this is the first time the setting has delivered EWT we do advise your practitioner to attend as many as they can.
