How can you help at home?

Starting school is a big step but not just for the children! Watching your child grow and move in to school life is both exciting and daunting.

Our partnership with you is a vital part of your child's learning and development.  The best way to support your child is to promote their independence and in turn their self-esteem!

The children benefit enormously from being able to manage themselves and their belongings.

Things like:

  • Dressing and undressing - beginning to learn how to fasten fiddly buttons and zips, putting shoes on the correct feet and putting on their own coat, all help.
  • Recognising their own name - Capital letter at the beginning and the rest in lowercase (knowing that your clothes and shoes are all labelled when getting changed for PE helps enormously!)
  • Going to the toilet independently - flushing the toilet and washing hands using soap afterwards.

These are just a few suggestions to aid in the first big steps into school life. We look forward to working with you and your children.
