How to prepare your child for Primary School: 5 tips for children and parents
30. 8. 2021
Primary school

Not only is the transition from pre-school to primary school a big step for children, but it is also difficult for their parents. Therefore, we put together 5 tips on how to handle the transition smoothly.

Prepare your child for the transition in advance

Rule number 1 is communication. Talk to your child about what it's like at school and explain what they’ll be doing there the next couple of days. Give your child instructions on school rules. In this way, you can help them overcome the anxiety of ongoing compulsory schooling.

Do homework together with your child for the first few months

Homework instead of playtime. Maths, English and Science. The Year 1 of Primary School can be exhausting for some children. After paying attention for the whole morning at school, children are expected to keep their eyes open at home in the afternoon, as well. Make at least one hour each day for your child and help them with their homework. Ask them how they are doing at school and whether they understand everything. Simply said -  be there for them.

Encourage creativity and learning enthusiasm

Every child has a talent for something else. The first one may be into Arithmetic, the second might be good at crafts, and the third can excel in singing. Unfortunately, the school curriculum is pre-set, and school lessons are time-limited. Hence, we do recommend developing your child’s talent in leisure, as well. If your child enjoys arts, enrol them in afternoon courses.

Create a schedule for all activities (so you all don’t get crazy)

Making a snack, preparing a school bag, checking homework, choosing clothes, keeping an eye on the school performance level. There are many tasks related to schooling for both parents and children. Keep calm and save your time by dividing all the work in advance. Do the following tasks together with your child every day before school:

  • Do the homework for the next day
  • Prepare for the exams
  • Get your child’s uniform ready
  • Prepare the school bag (books, notebooks, pencil case, etc.)
  • Make a snack and drink for the next day
  • Ask your child about their school performance
  • Agree on tomorrow’s program (picking up after school, afternoon extra-curricular activities)
Is your child behind the curriculum? Our tutoring is here for you!

Last year was challenging for all students, and catching up on subjects was impossible for university and college students, let alone the primary schoolers.

We are offering our online tutoring services all around England. Contact us, and we will take care of everything else.
