How you can help your child at home…

Activities you can try could include:-

  • Playing games that involve taking turns.
  • Playing with Alphabet letters.
  • Playing with cut out numbers so the child has an awareness of these.
  • Painting and drawing, which involve sitting down for short periods of time.
  • Constantly talking to your child and listening to their answers will is a really important activity and builds language skills and social skills.
  • Sing Nursery Rhymes and songs that children like that have repetition in them as these will help them to remember new words.
  • Telling or reading stories and poems to your child is an important part of developing an interest in reading. This should be an enjoyable experience for yourself and your child.
  • You should aim to share a story for a short period (e.g. 10 minutes at least) every day. When reading a story,  encourage your child to talk about the pictures and identify characters. Let your child hold the book and turn the pages as you read the story.
  • Spend time outdoors running, jumping and climbing this all helps to develop good gross motor skills.
  • Complete jigsaws, spending time colouring sheets, threading beads and using playdough all help develop fine motor skills.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
