DO: Help your child when learning a New This Week topic. However, try to encourage them to improve their score if you feel they didn’t quite understand first time round.
DO: encourage and reward – but only when deserved!
DO: promote independent use – this is essential if your child is going to develop skills and confidence that they can take back into the classroom.
DO NOT: help your child with their 7/8/9/10-a-day. Performance on these questions is used to determine future work programs – if they are given excessive help and get questions right that they don’t fully understand, their work program may become too hard for them.
