To help them keep up with their learning in school, we recommend that children do the following things at home:
- Read with an adult every day for at least 10mins and discuss the text they are reading.
- Practise spellings as often as possible.
- Practise number bonds as often as possible.
- Practise multiplication table (times tables) as often as possible.
As a school, we subscribe to Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rock Stars to support children in practising their spellings and recall of multiplication facts. Children in Y1-6 have logins/passwords in their reading diaries for these websites. If your child does not yet have a login, please notify their class teacher.
We also subscribe to Picture News, an organisation that looks at current news articles and pitches them at an age-appropriate level for Primary children. Each week, they also produce a version for children to explore and discuss at home, which can be found on this link: Picture News.
If you are looking for additional learning activities, there are a number of workbooks you can purchase from shops/online retailers and our Year Group Pages often suggest useful websites you can visit with your child.
Please see below for our Learning Together Sheets, which contain short activities and explanations that will support you further in helping your child to continue their learning at home.
