How Can You Help?

We firmly believe that the family and school need to work together and welcome all involvement in school life

There are plenty of things that you can do to support learning at home.

Conversation
The simplest of which is to talk to your child frequently about what they are learning in school. Holding conversations with your child about anything at all will support their development of vocabulary, understanding of the world around them and give them context to their learning.

Reading
Additionally they will have a reading book which, even if your child can read well, it always helps to have an audience. Sharing books with your children can be incredibly useful, and very special, whatever the age! They are welcome to take extra books out of the library – just ask your class teacher.
Tips for reading with your child can be found here.

Maths
In addition the children will also have a personalised learning target – in maths for example it may be about learning a specific times table – or working on a calculation method. The older children have their targets in their home school diary, and the targets for the younger ones will be sent home by the class teacher. There are lots of ways you can support learning maths facts at home – whether it is just quizzing or questioning or playing games on a tablet or phone.

Online School Links
In addition children in class 2, 3 and 4 will have a log in for google drive – this will also take them to an ‘online’ classroom which will have link, ideas and different activities for their topics.
