Literacy and Numeracy Resources

The ‘Helping your child with literacy and numeracy at home’ booklet has been created for parents, carers and families of children in the early years of school. The activities in the booklet are designed for parents to support their child’s first year of learning at school. They are fun and engaging and are linked to key foundational early learning skills.
Practical games are included in the following areas: 

  • Speaking and listening
  • Reading
  • Drawing and writing
  • Numbers and counting
  • Adding and subtracting
  • Identifying and creating patterns.

The 'Helping your child with literacy and numeracy at home' document is available by clicking on the link. Parents and carers are then able to download the document which is also available in 35 different languages.

In addition, the Handwriting in the early years guide for parents and carers provides guidance and activities for children in the early years.
You can access these resources via the literacy and numeracy resources for parents and carers webpage.
