With the recent announcement that children will return to school from next week, I thought it would be nice to share ideas and tips on how parents can make that transition as smooth as possible for their child and ideas of how they can support them. This could be tutors sharing tips with parents or parents sharing tips with each other.
Some children may be really excited to walk through those school gates again whereas others may not be feeling great about it.
My tip: Encourage your child to share their thoughts and feelings. This could be done in a fun way (e.g. a feelings chart showing various feelings and emotions, with a peg they can place on the chart and move each morning/evening). Children may feel a whole variety of emotions throughout the first few weeks back and this could help to initiate conversation.
What would your top tip be?
