How Can I Support My Child’s Learning?
Plan trips and travels as a family
Have a family approach to travel. Investigate the area and explore the culture before you go. Get children involved in pricing and research. Read reviews together.
Help them find the answers to their questions
Children are curious. They ask questions. Google has the answers when you don’t. Why not ask Google together and enjoy discovering new things together.
Watch a family movie and talk about it
Movies can make us think about issues and ideas in new ways. Make some popcorn and have a family movie night watching one of these great movies.
Write or tell stories together
Writing and telling stories can be a fun way to develop your child’s language skills and imagination. WHO? WHAT? WHY? WHERE? WHEN? are the important questions every story needs to answer.
Explore the World online
Can’t afford that trip to Australia? Explore it anyway with virtual trips. Watch travel shows on YouTube for a country. Price up a trip for fun. Watch a movie that’s set there. Cook up some country themed food. Get Google Maps and Google Earth on the go and walk about the streets.
Speak With Them
Words are hugely important in a child’s development. Talk to them as much and as often as you can. Point things out from the bus and the car. Share ideas. Tell stories from your childhood. Help them understand the world.
