Helping with your child’s learning

With many young children starting school in September, there are parents all over the country worrying about how they can help their child in their education. Teachers have a huge task of teaching each and every pupil how to read and write as well as other skills such as social skills.

As a parent there is still plenty you can do to help your child in their learning journey.  More or less as soon as your child starts school, they will be given books to bring home. Taking 5 or 10 mins every day to hear them read and discuss the book with them can make a huge difference to how they progress at school and the early stages are often very important.

If your child enjoys reading and writing or maths or science then you could get them a fun activity book to complete at home with you.
