Age 7 to 11 Tips and info
Spend time talking to your child about what they are studying at school. You could work with them to make lists of words for their school topics and use a dictionary together to find out their meanings. Get your child to make up a story to tell you and other family members, especially younger brothers or sisters. Or talk together about the books your child is reading or the TV programmes they are watching.
Libraries are free to join and offer more than just books these days. Most local libraries offer CD and DVD rentals, rhyme time for babies and young children, storytime for children of all ages, and they even offer events for adults. For more information about libraries click here.
