  • recognise requests for personal information and understand that there are different ways to respond, e.g. minimal answer, short form of the verb, fuller answer. E.g. - What's your name? - Maria. - Are you working? - No, I'm looking for a job.
  • Be able to use contracted forms - Can you drive? - Yes, I can./No, I can't.
  • Be able to spell words out loud, and know when it is necessary to do so (e.g. spell name of the street, but not the word street) My name's... I live in... I've got three children.
  • Be able to incorporate the giving of information into an interaction, e.g. when introducing self. My name is Rafiq. I'm looking for Mrs Bennett.
