As the new term begins in about a week’s time, our children’s new teachers will be planning and working hard to make sure that all our children are progressing but with many schools having an average number of at least 30 pupils per class, it will be quite impossible to give each child the individual attention that they need.
Attention is usually needed for every child no matter what levels they are at. From the child who falls behind the rest of the class and does not understand the topics as fast as others to the child who understands it so easily and requires more work to challenge and push them ahead. As parents we must be there to fill in those gaps that the teachers cannot possibly fill. More support from us is encouraged and providing our children with extra support to keep them occupied at home is very essential. Let’s make some plans on how we can start to give our children more and better support. To all you amazing parents, we are rooting for you and know that you will do your best. Our children are going to be great but we must play our parts.
