Parents in Touch

The Summer Terms are busy ones at school and many children will be taking tests and exams. Give them extra confidence by using our worksheets and other resources, so they are familiar with the concepts and can tackle questions with confidence. Even if they are not doing exams, children will benefit from revising the work done during the school year, so they are ready to move on in September.


Foundation Stage It is always beneficial to encourage your children to paint, draw, enjoy playdough and increase their fine motor skills with a range of activities. Try some of the ideas included here and learn together!

  • Animal alphabet This is a good way for children to remember their letters - and perhaps they can make up their own animal alphabet too.
  • Starting school Review some of the skills that children will need when entering Reception in September.
  • How to help your children learn Here is inspiration if you are stuck for ideas.

English It is essential that children enjoy reading and it is a pleasure to read stories and sing with your children.Try the Auditory games and learn together.


Maths Teaching maths through games is not only fun but ensures that your child enjoys learning and gives a firm understanding of maths concepts.

Teachers Many skills are learnt through Dance and Movement. 


Topics Topics are an excellent way of teaching many different concepts at the same time. 


Science If science is made fun children will approach it with interest and enjoyment. 


Family activities A family quiz helps concentration, increases knowledge and is enjoyed by all. They are also useful resources for teachers.
