Reading Every Day

Reading each and every day is one of the best things you could do to support your child's communication skills. If your child is preverbal or confident verbal teenager, being read to models interest, enables them to imagine and share an interest with you. It's bonding time at its best!

Homework Can Be Tough!

We know our pupils find learning a challenge and some children prefer to separate school and home - particularly when it comes to 'school work'!

As parents and school, we know however that the most important aspect of your son/daughter's learning is the transferability of skills and knowledge and its development over time. As such, undertaking reading, writing, number work and PSD activities at home are a crucial aspect of your child's progress in learning.

Try to find different times, places and 'moods' to undertake the activities. Turn off the TV or radio, try doing homework when other members of the family are out, or a Saturday morning before playing or going out. Try to work up to having set routines with homework and consider the notion of 'now and next'.
