Home learning is sent out weekly during term time and we encourage parents to support their children.
Please ensure your child has their logins for:
Please read to and read with your children regularly and encourage them to read independently. We suggest having a regular bedtime storytelling time to enjoy books together. Please use your child’s Reading Record book to keep a list of the books read.
Number bonds and times tables (multiplication and division) are important foundations of further maths knowledge. Without a thorough knowledge of these rules, children will struggle with maths later on. Please help them to learn their number bonds, multiplication and their division tables. Start with the easy tables first: 2, 5, 10, 11 x tables – before moving onto the others.
Encourage children to write as often as possible and to form their letters correctly. They could write about things they have done or places they have visited. They could also write diaries, book reviews or creative stories. Keep a scrapbook of holiday places visited and of course include your children’s comments on the events.
Teachers set targets for children in reading, writing and maths which are shared during parent consultations and end of year reports. Please check these and support your child at home to achieve them. Your child’s teacher will advise you on ways to help.v
The school runs a parenting course at intervals giving useful tips and advice to parents and carers. The course is run over an eight week period and led by the schools Learning Mentor/Family Support Worker. Parents who attended the last series of meetings found it a useful and informative resource and I would recommend it to parents who are able to attend next time it is run.
Please check the Useful Links page for children and parents as these contain many carefully selected websites. The websites for children cover many areas of the curriculum and should prove useful as homework aids or as important general knowledge. General knowledge is an important aspect of comprehension. All of the websites are presented in fun, colourful and informative ways. New links will be added as they are discovered.
