How can I help my child learn at home?

  • You can help your child recgnise the letters and numbers they see on car number plates or house doors.

  • Your child could use post-it notes to write labels for models they make or small toys they play with.

  • It is important that children see adults writing so they understand writing has a real-life purpose.  If you are writing anything, you can ask your child to help you by saying which sounds to write.
