Mum is learn­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

Clare Purvis-Hutchin­son is mum to Rosie, seven.

She un­der­stands some of the dif­fi­cul­ties in get­ting your child to prac­tise what they are learn­ing in school.

Clare said:“Morn­ings are some­what chaotic and rushed in our house so the walk to school is a good time to catch up and get ready for the day ahead.

“We prac­tice read­ing and count­ing as of­ten as we can. We do things like read­ing road signs, play­ing puz­zle games and count­ing money when shop­ping.

“It’s im­por­tant for me be­cause it aids her ed­u­ca­tion and al­lows her to thrive in ev­ery­day cir­cum­stances. How­ever, it’s not al­ways straight­for­ward, as Rosie of­ten prefers to play out with friends.”
