Here are some ideas to help you support your child with their learning at school…….

Following Parent and Children workshops held in school here are a few comments from Parents who attended….

  “My other son also did this, it’s very effective & fun.     “It is really important to work together with my child and it is not that hard at all.”
 Something I learned today was…

    “Being able to adapt play to maths.”                                 “How easy it is to actually sit with him and learn whilst playing.”

  “It was so exciting for me to show some simple words for my son to write.” “How to break down the learning and teaching skills.”
  “The importance of allowing them to speak before they write things down.”   “Not spelling words correctly for the first time is ok.”

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a vitally important stage in every child’s development, beginning from birth to the age of five.

The Early Learning Goals are statements of the skills, knowledge and understanding it is expected children to have acquired by the time they finish in their Reception class at school. The importance of the Prime Areas (Communication & Language Development, Physical Development and Personal, Social & Emotional Development) in a child’s development cannot be stressed greatly enough.

The Characteristics of Effective Learning will influence the learning and development of every child from birth for their whole life. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to speak to myself, or your child’s class teacher.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Miller (Early Years Foundation Stage Coordinator)
