Communicating – discussion

Observe a conversation between two 6 year olds whilst on a walk in the woods with peers.

Good for looking at:

  • expected patterns of language and speech development


  • What cues can you see that show what the children are interested in? (Look out for non-verbal and body language as well as spoken language)
  • How are the children learning?
  • Which areas of development, engagement and characteristics of learning can you observe?
  • In what ways does the adult support the children’s learning?
  • How does the environment support the children’s learning?
