How can I help support my child's learning at home?

  • Keep in touch with the topics your child is learning each term so that you can talk to them about it. Details of the topics can be found in the curriculum section of the website and on first newsletter of each term.
  • Help them find time and space to undertake their homework. Homework tends to focus on regular reading, learning spellings and multiplication tables. Homework should form a regular part of a child’s routine – a little and often approach has been found to be most beneficial.
