In pre-school all the children receive a healthy snack every morning. This morning it was such a nice day that we enjoyed our snack in the Early Years Garden under the shade of the big tree. We support the development of our children’s vocabulary by adding descriptive words when we ask what snack they would like, for example juicy oranges, squishy tomatoes, soft pears, yellow bananas. Today we ate crunchy apples and talked about how noisy it was when we bit into them. We find that the children begin to use these words in their everyday speech.
