Milestones - By five years
By the age of five, almost all children will be in school. At this stage they need to learn how to listen, understand and share their ideas within the classroom. They also need to understand words and phrases used in school that they may not have heard at home – such as “line up”, “packed lunch” and “talk to your partner” etc.
They also still need to have conversations – to share information, to make friends and explain how they are feeling. They use talk to help work out problems and organise thinking and activities.
