HOW PARENTS CAN HELP AT HOME

There are many ways you can support your child at home. Here are some suggestions about how you could help:
• Encourage your child to talk about what they have learnt at school.
• Link learning to real life experiences - encourage them to write shopping lists, read signs around the environment, count out money, identify how much change would be given etc.
• Listen to your child reading – Please try to read on a daily basis with your child and ask them questions about what they have read.
• Encourage your child to practise and learn their spellings – discuss spelling patterns or rules.
• Talk about your child’s homework – discuss the work and ask your child to explain it to you.
