Bowerham Community Challenge

Every half term the children at Bowerham will be setting themselves, you as parents and members of our school community a very important challenge. For the challenge to succeed everyone will need to get involved!

This half term we want to build on our children’s independence skills. Does your child get themselves dressed and organised for school in the morning? Are they able to tie their own shoelaces?

Independence is about learning to do things for oneself, which includes making decisions and taking on responsibility. These are hugely important skills for children to learn to cope with in adulthood.

The challenge: Let’s do things for ourselves!

Remember to try to ignore the temptation to immediately take over a task if your child is struggling. Sometimes a little more time or a few words of encouragement are all your child needs!
