Little chatterboxes took part in a sponsored sing-along designed to nurture their own speaking and listening skills while helping other children who struggle to communicate.

Rendlesham Primary School joined I CAN’s annual charity Chatterbox Challenge, this year endorsed by animated television characters Ben and Holly.

Nursery teacher Jo Reed said: “Learning songs and doing the Chatterbox Challenge activities has helped to develop our children’s speaking, listening and understanding skills, ensuring they are given the best start for their later experiences at school.”
