There are lots of ways that you can support your child’s learning at home. The most simple one is to talk!  Children learn so much from having conversations: not just speaking and communication skills but listening skills too! You will also be helping them to broaden their vocabulary by learning words in a meaningful way. Here are some other things you can be doing at home:

  • Share stories. This is one of the most powerful things you can do to help your child at the start of their reading journey.  Children who are read to usually go on to enjoy reading themselves.
  • Encourage your child to become independent.  Ask them to help put some of their clothes on.  Start with simple things and work your way up as they become more confident. Ask them to help with other things too: involve them in tidying up some of their toys.  It can be a game – who can tidy their pile away first? Give them a smaller pile so that they win!
  • Play games and do activities that involve taking turns and sharing. This could be specific games activities or it could be in other play activities.  For example, when colouring together, ask your child if you can borrow their crayon or offer yours to them.
  • Enjoy exploring outside together – and talk lots about what you see and do!
