If you'd like to help your child develop some extra skills this summer click on the subjects below for some links and helpful ideas. Don't forget that your child's teacher will also be happy to point you in the direction of suitable resources. In order to establish good learning habits, stick to a routine and don't overdo it. 15 minutes a day is much more effective than 2 hours once a week. And don't forget there are many skills that support learning and don't feel like learning - gross motor skills like throwing, catching, balancing, skipping, climbing; fine motor skills like threading, playdough, drawing, typing; language skills like questioning, explaining, imagining, following instructions; maths skills like measuring, weighing, using the clock, problem solving.
