As a parent or guardian, how can I help with my child’s learning?
All the fun activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their learning and development, and have a really long lasting effect on your child’s learning as they progress through school. When your child leaves school, please talk to them about their day.
If you make the time every day to do some of the following things with your child it will make a real difference to your child’s confidence as a young learner.

Activities to support your child with reading at home:
- Fred Games
Fred is a frog who can say and read words only as pure sounds. He cannot say whole words. The team at Read Write Inc phonics have put together some 'Fred Games' for parents to use to support their children when they are learning how to blend sounds together to build words.
