Supporting your Child Outside of the Classroom


Children learn a lot of new skills in school but in order to progress as best they can, it’s important to support them outside of the classroom too. Parents, friends and family can all do things to help. Here are some of the most effective ways to support a child’s development:

• Read with them. Children who are just learning how to read need all the practice they can get. Take the time to sit down with them and make sure they are reading words correctly.
• Take them on educational visits. For example, take them to see a historical place they have been studying or the birthplace of an author they have read at school.
• Help them with homework. Let them do the work but guide them towards the answers they need if they are struggling. Encourage them to take an interest in their work outside of the minimum that is required of them.
