Learning is not just for school


When many of us think of learning, we often think about school, college, university or other qualifications, but what about learning life skills?

From the moment we are born we start to learn. First how to feed and start to communicate with sounds and then on to walking. Even figuring out how to use a knife and fork is a type of learning and much of this is initially taught at home.

Schools like to see parents and carers taking an interest in what the pupil is learning at school and carrying this on at home. This may be as simple as asking them to show you what they have learnt and asking a few simple questions.

When your child comes to learn how to read at school, it is always easier if they have be taught a bit at home. This may also give your child more confidence in the classroom if they understand a bit more about what is being taught.
