How to help your child

There are many ways in which you can support your child in their Learning Journey. 

  • help them to be prepared for school - bags packed, uniform out but encourage them to start to take responsibility for this themselves
  • support the daily tasks that we expect the children to carry out home - listen to them read, help them practice their weekly spellings and their multiplication tables
  • visit the school library with them after school and choose a book together
  • log on to the website and share in what they have been learning - each class has a page
  • follow your child's class on twitter and again talk about their learning with them
  • read the newsletters - they often have details about what is going on in school and in classes
  • try and attend some of the parent workshops that we put on to help you understand how we teach your children and how you can support this
