How can I help at home?
These are the key areas in which you can support your child at home in preparation for starting school:
Writing our names in LOWER CASE letters NOT all in capitals
Correct letter formation, remembering to start at the bottom in preparation for cursive script
Recognising letter sounds s, a, t, p, i, n, c k, e, h, r, m, d, g, o, u, l, f, b, j, o, z, w, v, y, x, and some familiar words - mum, dad and advertising logos.
Counting, recognising, ordering and using numbers to 10 or more.
Recognise and name colours
Gaining independence when dressing/undressing in readiness for changing for PE in Reception
