Reading    πŸ”


The early reading skills your child will learn at this age are an important foundation for starting school.

The focus at this age is on sharing stories, songs, and rhymes together and building talking and listening skills. Luckily, there are lots of fun and easy ways to encourage early reading success at home. 
The website below will give some helpful information. 
Please take a look!



The link below is about preparing your child for starting school. This is just a guide to point you in the right direction. Remember, children are unique and will develop at different times. Some things will come easily to them and some will be far more challenging. Even us adults find things tricky and take time to adjust and learn new things!! 

If your child is due to start school in September it would be extremely helpful and beneficial if you could get them ‘school ready.’
 This includes:

• Able to get dressed and undressed for PE including footwear.  Practise with your child at home changing into shorts and t-shirts and back in to other clothes again.  You could use a timer to make it a daily competition to beat their last time.  Parents of girls – tights are always a challenge, so as much practise with these would be great.  Show children how to put their clothes the right way if they get inside out.

• Toilet training – Those children that are still not quite toilet trained, unless there is a medical issue, this would also be beneficial to everybody if they are dry before September.  

• Taking turns and sharing – if you are at home alone with your child then ask them to have a turn of their toy they are playing with.  

• Putting their own coat on and doing up the fastening.  

• Recognising numbers 0 – 10

• Counting 0 – 10

• Recognise their name

• Being able to write their name cursively (please see the cursive alphabet mat in the links on our main page).


All these things will help your child (and school staff!) immensely in preparation for starting school.  Even if your child is not quite ready for school yet, working towards all these steps will give them a great start.  


There are lots of websites offering free activities to keep yourselves busy, but some of our favourites are -
