We believe that children learn best when parents, the school and children work together in partnership. There are a number of ways that parents can support their children’s learning at home.
- Try to hear them read every day – or if they are older and more confident readers, encourage them to read themselves. Fill in the reading log – there are rewards at school for regular reading.
- Give your son/daughter help and encouragement. Try to get involved and above all talk to them about their learning and listen to what they tell you.
- If you have access to the internet, many websites that can help your child explore the subjects that they are learning at school. The curriculum overview, sent home each term, will inform you what your child is learning.
- During school holidays, continue to hear them read and revise their times tables.
Homework you can expect your child to be set:
- Daily reading
- Weekly Literacy – including spellings or phonics
- Weekly maths – including number bonds or times tables
- Termly – a project to be completed with parents at home, linked to the topic they have been learning about.
