How learning new words can help your child
A broad, rich vocabulary – the words we recognise and know how to use – allows a child to understand and enjoy the things they read, to learn about the world around them, and to express themselves and their thoughts so that people will listen. Research suggests that a strong vocabulary in childhood is linked to future success and happiness, both at school and in later life. A rich vocabulary allows children to understand the books they read and the ideas the teacher shares at school, meaning they can take an active part in lessons and make good progress.
