Show and Tell

Show and tell is very exciting for the children! It is a great opportunity to build on the child’s language and confidence skills. Each child is allocated a day for show and tell, this allows them time to prepare. Children do not have to bring a toy; they can bring in pictures or simply have talking news about anything they like!
