Core Vocabulary at Forest Wood

We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to learn to communicate in a variety of ways, and so our Core Vocabulary is a key part of every day. The document below will explain what our Core Vocabulary is and the reason it is in place. You can download a set of Core Vocabulary to use with your child at home, including the symbols, below that. You will find tutorial videos for these words, which demonstrate how to use the sign and how to support your child.

Our curriculum is then developed around core sets of words which provide opportunities to explore British Values and subject specific vocabulary. Subject specific vocabulary can be found on our other curriculum tabs, where you will also find videos of the children learning and experiencing this vocabulary in the setting.
