Enhancing Communication and Language Skills in Early Years: Top 5 EFYS Activities and Their Benefits

Effective communication and language skills are crucial for children’s overall development and future success. This blog post explores three key areas: the top 5 communication and language skills in EFYS and their benefits, the top 5 listening exercises in EYFS and their benefits, and activities to communicate through arts in EFYS and their benefits. By incorporating these activities into the curriculum, educators can foster strong communication skills, active listening, and creative expression in young learners.

Vocabulary Development

Encourage children to learn new words through books, conversations, and interactive activities. This skill enhances their ability to express themselves, understand others, and improve overall communication.

Help children develop proper sentence structure by modeling and providing opportunities for them to practice. This skill improves their ability to convey thoughts and ideas clearly and effectively.


Encourage children to create and share their own stories. This activity enhances imagination, vocabulary, and language skills. It also promotes creativity, critical thinking, and self-expression.

Listening and Responding

Teach children active listening skills, such as maintaining eye contact, asking questions, and responding appropriately. This skill improves their ability to understand and engage in conversations.

Non-Verbal Communication

Help children understand and use non-verbal cues, such as facial expressions, body language, and gestures. This skill enhances their ability to communicate effectively and understand others’ emotions.
