Supporting your child at home
Welcome to our supporting your child at home page.
There are many ways you can support your childs education from home. As a school we share at the beginning of every year through our class welcome letter and the informal open evening the expectations for homework for the year ahead. It is vital that your child reads at home regularly and works on their understanding of number bonds, times tables and practices spelling patterns through Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Numbots. This extra time to practice really impacts on teh progress children make.
Below is a list of suitable websites to support your child at home should you wish to use them. Many of these websites are used in school so your child will be familiar with them.
