How you can prepare your children for Year 6

In order to prepare your child for Year 6 and beyond there are a number of life skills that your children need to become secure in. These are best practised in real life situations, when cooking, shopping, travelling e.g.

  • Telling the time on an analogue and digital clock
  • Reading bus timetables
  • Understanding units of measure: mm, cm, m, km, g and kg, ml and l 
  • Converting currency
  • Calculating totals and change in shops
  • Calendar skills: days in a week, months in a year, hours in a day etc

Have a lovely summer and post on the blog what you have been up to!
