How can I help at home? 

 

One of the keyways every parent can help, is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 25 minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Practicing times tables frequently is vital, and children should be confident in their times tables by the end of year 4.  

Children have logins for Times Table Rockstars and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts.  

If you have any questions, please talk to Miss Sayers or Ms Fairclough alternatively, you can arrange a meeting via the school email.  

Thanks,  

Ms Fairclough and Miss Sayers
