Be creative with how you support your children’s learning- it doesn’t all have to be structured learning. Learning comes in many formats- it can also be playing Lego, painting, building dens, gardening, identifying local wildlife and plants, role playing, talent shows, cooking and baking. Why not try holding your own family assemblies? Or Show and Tell?

So…..Go for It and let your imagination go wild!!!!
