  • Encouraging your child to write for different purposes, for example shopping lists and birthday cards.
  • Provide opportunities for counting and look out for numbers within the environment.
  • Regularly talking to them about starting Reception and what to expect.
  • Encouraging independence in relation to dressing, eating lunch and looking after belongings.
