PORTSMOUTH INFANT SCHOOLS
This page lists the Infant Schools in the Portsmouth and Southsea areas.
In order to prepare your child for starting at Infant School, help improve their independence, enforce the habit of using the toilet themselves, practice getting dressed and undressed themselves, velcro shoes are useful and practice feeding themselves including the use of a knife and fork.
Teachers say that promoting reading at home is a very important way that parents can help their child. Make sure your child has regular reading practice and check they understand what they read.
Help to build their social skills by playing and sharing with others on play dates, practice conversations allowing time for your child to speak, learn greetings such as hello.
As soon as you know which school your child will be attending start talking about it, how much fun it will be, visit the school and find positive aspects to talk about, things they enjoyed, who their teacher will be, where their classroom is.
