Getting Ready for School
Each week I will post a new focus for starting school. I would love to see pictures of your child doing this, please send this to me via my school email address or through the Seesaw App if you would prefer!
June week 4
Sadly we didn't get to do all the usual things we would normally do to prepare your child for moving to 'big school' this year. So at home these are some suggestions of things you could do/talk about with your child to help prepare them for Year 1:
Here is a message from Miss Pearson!
June Week 3-The Lunchbox Challenge!
There are lots of skills required when in eating lunch in school, there will always be an adult at hand to help, but it will be good to be able to as much as you can yourself. Here are some challenges for this week!
June Week 2-Working on Independence
This week I would like the boys and girls to focus on independence!
Choose anything from the list below that your child find difficult or needs to be reminded about:
It may be helpful to have a chart where they could tick off tasks they have completed or a star chart for the week to encourage them.
June Week 1: Clothes Challenge!
In school you will need to be able to dress yourself, can you complete these challenges?
Day 1: Can you put your jumper or t-shirt on and take it off by yourself?
Day 2: Can you put on your own trousers or skirt? Practice on a pair that has a zip/button.
Day 3: Can you put your coat on and off yourself and do the zip?
Day 4: Can you put shoes on and off yourself?
Tip-a sticker cut in half and put on the inside of each shoe can help them put the shoes on the right feet.
Day 5: Extra challenge! Sometimes you will put your jumper under your desk, its best to do this as neatly as possible, can you learn how to fold your jumper?
