Ideas and activities to support your child.
Please spend some time helping and teaching your child to dress and undress independently and to fasten their own coat and shoes. This will help with changing for PE and when playing outdoors.
To encourage listening and concentration skills you can play games such as "I spy", pairs, matching games and board games. The use of board games also develops number skills such as number recognition and counting skills.
The use of play dough is great for developing their fine motor skills which are needed for writing development. We have included an easy no cook recipe below for you. Encourage your child to roll, pinch and manipulate the playdough.
It is really important to read stories regularly to your child and to help them learn nursery rhymes as the use and understanding of rhyme helps children to understand how language works, how words sound and the pattern of language. This is important for early phonic, reading and writing development. We have attached a nursery rhyme booklet for you to read with your child.
Physical development is very important for young child both to develop fitness, strength, co-ordination and to develop gross motor skills. Where possible take your child to the park and encourage climbing and swinging or let them dig with you in the garden; this develops and strengthens the muscles needed to help your child write.
