School readiness.

All children develop at different rates and therefore children should not be put under pressure to do certain things before they start school. However, we are often asked by parents how they can support their child before they start school. Please find in the files to download a Roadmap 'The Road to school' from Sheffield City Council about the sorts of things you as families can do to support your child before they start school. 

Useful websites:

This is an app of activites of things to do as a family which are free or cost very little. The app encourages activities which are developmentally appropriate for children under the age of 5, hence the '50 things to do before you're five' If you take part in any of the activites, we would love to see them. You can send pictures or comments of your activities to the class teachers in September.
