  • Finally, ensure your child has clothing suitable for the weather e.g. hat, gloves and warm coat in the winter or suntan lotion on and a cap in the summer. 


Weblinks for Children

Always review the sites ahead of time so that you are able to help your child find the best resources available within the sites. Some offer a great number of games, songs, stories, videos etc so it is important to know the site well in order to support and develop your child’s learning.
