How can I help at home?

One of the key ways 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 30 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. Practising times tables frequently is vital, and children should be confident in their times tables by the end of year 4.

Children have logins for Mathletics, Literacy Planet 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 Mrs Hicks, Ms Kironde or Mr Jones, or you can arrange a meeting via Zoom.

Thanks,

Mrs Hicks, Ms Kironde, and Mr Jones
