Is Your Child Ready To Learn?

Education News | by | 10th Aug 2016

Is your child Ready To Learn when they start school?

Does your little one recognise their own name, know how to wash their hands or hold a pencil? Then Ready To Learn can help!

Learning a few skills before starting school can really help your child settle into school life. This will help them progress quickly.

Ready To Learn is latest part of Education Begins At Home, Welsh Government’s campaign to make the home a fun learning environment for children, so they have a head start in life.

This may sound a bit daunting, but it really isn’t. The tips and advice in the video above, this download for parents and this activity chart are fun and simple too. To be honest, you’re probably doing a lot of these already.

It’s sometimes easy to forgot what a big leap it can be going to school for the first time. But helping children build their skills before their first day can really help with the transition from nursery to big school.
