Helping at home.
The best way you can help and support your child at home is by reading with them as much as you can. I know this can be tricky when your little ones come home tired from a long day at school and you have lots of other after school activities planned, but just 10 minuets a day could make all the difference to your child’s progress. All children should have a book from school that they can read at home and we encourage our children to read in school each and every day, whether that is to another adult, a peer, an older child, one of our reading volunteers or just quietly to themselves. If you would like any help or advice on how you can best support your child with their reading then please make an appointment to speak to their class teacher, or catch us on the playground at the end of the day. There is also a link below to the Oxford Owl website which will allow you access some free, age-appropriate ebooks and some ideas to help you support your child with phonics at home.
You can also find a range of other resources on this site including spelling lists, math activities and story time from authors and other adults. Don’t forget even our oldest children still enjoy being read to and it can be a lovely way to spend some quiet, quality time with your children!
