Parents in Touch

This is always a busy term leading up to all the Christmas plays and activities. Your children should have settled into their friendship groups and become familar with all the classroom routines. This is a good time to consolidate any new work, to extend your child's learning and increase imagination and vocabulary. All children benefit from extra reading, consolidation of mathematical processes and increased confidence in spelling or story writing. One to one discussions with your child can help to improve understanding, increase confidence and stimulate them to enjoy working in school. Try it and see!
