                                   * putting on/taking off shoes and tying laces

                                   * zipping up their own coat

                                   * using a knife and fork


mail  Read books with your child.   As well as reading any school reading books, read to them for enjoyment too and help them develop a love of books and stories.  Ask them questions about the stories and talk about the pictures and characters.  Don't forget to write in their Reading Records!


mail  Encourage your child to practise their writing in a range of fun ways - with large paintbrushes and water, with their finger in sand/flour/shaving foam etc, on the ground in chalk etc.  They could help you write a shopping list or birthday card.  Encourage them to 'Fred-talk' (sound out) the words they want to write and write down the sounds they can hear (even if it's only the initial and final sounds to start with).  Make sure they are forming their letters correctly!


mail  Count forwards and backwards up to 20, sing number rhymes and songs and look for numbers in the environment.


mail  Do some cooking or gardening!  If your child would like to bring in something they have baked or planted to show their friends, or a photo of what they have done, that would be lovely!


mail  Go on walks in the local area or on a trip a little further afield!  If you go on a special outing, you could take photos for your child to bring in to school and talk about.
