How can you help?
Ideas to support your child in their learning.
Data, data, data
Data is all around us. Is there an interest you have that uses data that you can share with your child?
Sports results, food planning, a budget, weather cycles...
You could enrich your child's learning by helping them to collect data on any topic, organise the data and then present it on a chart or graph!
You could also follow the direction of our identity unit and look at where your parents were born, their parents and so on.
