Have a read of this document called School Readiness. It may help you to prepare your child for school.

Click this link to access a story about Jake the Pirate's first day at school, this pirate-themed school transition story will help your child to understand the transition to a new school. Social stories like this can support your child by helping them to identify the feelings of others who are also settling into a new school.

This game is called Sound Starters, this game helps to get children attuned to the sounds around them and ready to begin developing listening skills, oral blending and segmenting skills.

Try this game to develop your child's ability to discriminate between different sounds. The aim is to raise children's awareness of the sounds around them and to develop their listening skills. Play Welcome To the Zoo here.

This is a counting game called Underwater Counting, encouarge your child to slowly point to the sea creatures as they count. You have the option of counting up to 5 or 10 depending on how confident they are with numbers. Count the sea creatures and find the corresponding number. Can they help Ben get the treasure?
