Activities for children with dyslexia

Top Tips For Parents

  • Repeat these lessons over and over, we never teach a lesson once and move on: children need their learning repeated.

  • This weekly timetable of ideas should help to have some structure to your days.
  • Find ways to extend your child's learning: add a challenge word or a question or exclamation sentence.
  • On the website we will aim to put weekly maths challenges up, have a go in your yellow work book.
  • Use the front sheet of our home learning pack for ideas and areas of learning to cover.
  • For these activities you do not need a printer or reams of paper, you need the workbook and pencil provided.
  • Remember, children do not have long attention spans, pick a topic they are interested in.
  • Our usual school day is split up with short bursts of exercise, play times and a lunch hour. Take this into consideration.
  • Remember to email in your home learning pictures and we will post them on this page, this is a great way to check in on each other!

Fractions, measurement measure and weigh, fill, empty and compare, make a tally or bar chart, tell the time, make a clock, make and draw shapes, find shapes in your house, what are their properties? Make a shape poster, look at lines of symmetry, can you create a symmetrical picture?
