Helping Your Child At Home

Many parents ask us the question “How can I help my child and the school?” Here are a few ways in which you can support your child and the school.

  • Children have a real need to be heard. Let them tell you about their day.
  • Tell them about your day. Find time to pray together.
  • Send your child to bed at a regular and reasonable time.
  • Be positive. Build your child’s confidence by praising the things (s)he does well.
  • Listen to your child read, and enjoy stories together.
  • Learn from your child’s teacher the best way (s)he thinks you can help your child at home.
  • Enrich your child’s leisure time by encouraging hobbies, sports, games, handicrafts, outings, joining clubs, etc.
  • Be selective about the television programmes/videos (s)he watches and discuss the programmes that you view together.
  • Encourage your child to read as much as possible.
  • Involve your child in the mathematical experiences of everyday life, in cooking, shopping, measuring and telling the time.
  • Take an active interest in any school work your child brings home such as research for topics, weekly spellings or tables.
  • If you are anxious about your child’s progress, please come and talk to us. Try not to pass on your anxiety to your child.
