  • Encourage them to tidy up their bedrooms or help with the washing up
  • Use the toilet as independently as possible and get them to wash their hands on their own
  • Use a knife and fork to eat their dinner
  • Spend time sharing books before bed
  • Talk about everyday things after school or whilst travelling on the bus or in the car
