"Learning To Achieve"

Turn Taking

Turn taking games is an activity we do a lot in Enfys. Taking turns is an important thing for your child to learn to do as can help with language and social skills. Turn taking is a skill that needs to be learnt and practiced. Waiting and turn taking can be difficult for some of our pupils.


Turn taking games is something you can teach your child at home with whatever you are doing. Start by saying whose go it is and taking turns. By using both of your names such as 'mummy's turn', 'Lana's turn' you will make it clearer, opposed to saying 'my turn' and 'your turn'.  It is important to keep turns short and motivating to keep your child's attention.


Games at home to try could include:

Rolling, throwing, kicking a ball to each other

Blowing bubbles

Playing with balloons

Rolling cars

Using an instrument

Building Towers

Putting shapes into shape sorters

Tap, tap, box

Imitating each others sounds
