Bug Club Vocabulary
A strong foundation in verbal communication and storytelling is hugely important for future literacy success.
What is Bug Club Vocabulary?
The Bug Club Vocabulary Language Booster is a fun and effective series of play based sessions for children in Reception and the Early Years who start school behind their peers in their language development.
Bug Club Vocabulary can help your school tackle the vocabulary gap and support a strong foundation in verbal communication and storytelling.
Sessions are designed to be delivered by a teaching assistant, including a placement probe and assessment tasks to measure progress.
The lesson plans are specifically designed to help children in Reception who need a little extra help with their language development, using those all-important traditional tales for effective, motivating lessons that work on:
- Story making and telling
- Speaking and listening skills
- Creating and sequencing stories
