The paper describes the data of a developmental research that involved group training aimed at developing key elements of communicative competence in early school-age children. Communicative competence reflects a child’s ability and readiness to be effective in communication with peers and adults and is comprised of three basic competencies corresponding with three aspects of communication (speech/linguistic, evaluative/reflective, and social/behavioural). It was experimentally proved that there is a positive correlation between the general level of communicative competence in children aged 6-8 y ears a nd t heir abilities to plan, coordinate efforts, organise and carry out interactions in pairs in the process of accomplishing mutual tasks. The authors argue that activities aimed at developing key communicative actions in children become the ground for communicative competence development.
