How can I help my child at home?

Encouraging your child to draw, write, count, share books, notice words, letters and numbers around them as well as playing and talking is hugely beneficial.

We have enjoyed using Tedi Twt sacks in our classes. Tedi Twt will continue to go home with a different child each week and we love seeing what he’s been up to in the accompanying book. They will have the opportunity to share what they did with him with the rest of the class. Please ensure all items are in the sack when it comes back to school.
