BBC Bitesize have been busily adding to their Starting Primary School collection of info and tips to support young children, before and during their first few months at school. It includes contributions from our own Helen Stroudley, Peeple Early Years Consultant, including practical tips on toilet training, boosting children's learning in everyday life and developing independence skills. You can still hear Helen and Vibha (a parent of siblings with different responses to starting school) sharing tips and promoting the campaign on BBC Sounds Woman’s Hour podcast (from 32 minutes in, to 49 mins).
There's an excellent interactive game to play with your child to prepare for them starting Primary School.
Watch a trailer for the campiagn here (see if you can spot Helen's one liner).
