Reading aloud at home continues to be vitally important. You may even get your child to read their own writing aloud, attempting to add expression appropriate to the sentence.
When children are writing outside of school – or when you are looking at school work with them – why not discuss their choices of vocabulary?
There are plenty of opportunities for maths practice at home, from counting objects to simple games, such as dominoes and Snakes & Ladders. You can also begin to explore using money and clocks both in play at home and when out and about.
Playing traditional games, such as battleships or even draughts and chess, is great way of helping your child think logically or to look at the relationship between shapes, numbers and co-ordinates.
