Ways in which you can further support your child’s development and learning at home:
Please share and update your child’s Home School communication book regularly. Bring to nursery every day. THANK YOU for your contributions. They make a great addition to gaining a picture of the “child as a whole.”
Enjoy sharing a range of books together, including stories and information books linked to your child’s current interests and fascinations.
Encourage child to take off and hang up their coat/ find peg with increasing independence. Practise dressing skills at home. Encourage children to ‘have a go’ and ‘keep trying’.
Support child on entry to the classroom (e.g. find name card/ practise early mark making skills/ settle and enjoy sharing a book/ choose a library book with your child on a Wednesday).
Support child with ‘home-school activity’. Build confidence and self-esteem, praise your child for their effort and encourage a ‘can do’ attitude.
Encourage your child to have fun with food and make healthy choices.
Make time to be active every day.
Complete ‘WOW’ moments and add to the wall in the classroom.
Please remember to view and share your child’s learning profile online. We welcome your feedback.
