Here are some simple life skills for you to try with your children at home.
Encourage your child to help clear away their plate and wash up after each meal.
Here's a simple method to help teach your child how to tie shoe laces.
- Fold each end of the lace into a single "bunny ear." You can hold the "ears" in place between your thumb and pointer finger on each hand.
- Cross the bunny ears so that they form an "X" in the air.
- Loop the bottom bunny ear over and through the top bunny ear. This will create a second knot.
- Pull the bunny ears out to the side away from the shoe. This will create a square knot that will not easily come undone and will hold the shoe in place.
Do not worry if they are not picking it up and teaching them is getting frustrating for both of you, leave it and try again at another time.
We've not been at school for just over a week now, Mrs Brookes, Miss Dodson and Mrs Guest would love to hear about what your child has been up to! Can you help your child to type us an email and let us know what they've been doing? Can they include a picture? We would love to hear from them!
