Seasons and Festivals

As with all literacy based activities, support by the use of symbols can benefit all children.

  • Symbol with word supports understanding of vocabulary because the graphic image is more easily remembered than the text equivalent
  • Increases motivation to attend, listen and participate
  • Supports development of oral and written language skills - particularly sequencing
  • Promotes children's ability to visualise
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Allows all pupils to access the curriculum
