BBC's Tiny Happy People campaign to support children's language development

I’ve recently been involved with filming some short clips for the BBC’s Tiny Happy People campaign. The initiative aims to empower parents and practitioners to support children’s language development through a number of videos, resources and activities.

In this first video, I offer some tips about how to explore different sound effects during storytime. Making sound effects when reading a book is a fantastic way for children to understand the connection between sounds and words.

In this second video, we get inventive by changing the words to favourite nursery rhyme tunes
