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.
