How to help your child this half term

Encourage your child to be independent, e.g. putting on their own coat. Play turn taking games so they can learn to wait for their turn. Share stories at home every day and talk about the characters, or see if they can recall/retell favourite and familiar stories. Talk to them about what is happening in the world around them and what changes they can see e.g. changing seasons, the weather and the different clothes we wear.

Library books

The children will choose a library book to bring home every Wednesday. We will provide a manilla folder for each child, but you may wish to purchase a green Lakeside book folder through parent pay at a cost of £4.50. Could you please send their reading folder to school every Wednesday. Thank you.
