Getting Ready For School

We hope to add lots of ideas to support your child with school readiness.

 

This is our favourite poster with lots of wonderful tips! 

 

Developing Speaking and Listening Skills

Choose a song or story to listen to

*Read a book together about starting school.  Many of these can be found on YouTube by searching the title of the book.

Can you sing along to these nursery rhymes?

Getting dressed and undressed on your own

When you come to school you will wear an exciting new school uniform! All of the children will be wearing the same colour.  Our uniform at White Court School is grey, white and royal blue.  Before you start school, put on and take off your school uniform. 

*Can you put on your clothes?

*Can you take off your clothes?

*Can you undo a button and do it back up?

*Can you put your shoes and socks on?

*Can you put your coat on and zip it up?

 

Can you colour and dress the dolls to match the colours of your school uniform?

Counting Objects

Can you find some objects at home to count? These could be teddy bears, balls, coins, Lego pieces, Smarties, books, plastic animals and wooden blocks.  Can you set up a picnic and collect a given number of plates, cups, bowls, teddy bears or items of food?

Number songs are great for learning numbers and the order of these.
