At home please help your child by:
- Talking to them about their learning. Research shows that parents and carers who take an active interest in their child's learning help them to make more progress than other children.
- Reading with them and encouraging reading alone for at least 20 minutes a day.
- Practising English skills, times tables or other number facts - or working on one of the school's online learning platforms.
- Testing your child on their weekly spellings.
- Working with your child on their termly homework projects.
