Supporting your child at home

All children have access to a wide variety of books. Children have the opportunity to choose a book of their choice and also a book levelled at their ability. Parents can support their children's learning through reading with them every day, taking children to the local library to read about our themes, and by practicing maths with them.

Reading Explorers at home:  Guided reading in KS2 uses the Reading Explorers Approach so that each week your child will do two structured lessons in their reading groups.  These comprise of a pre-read with the class teaching assistant, to familiarise the children with the text, and a focused read with the teacher the next day.  On the day of their pre-read, your child will bring the text home to be read with an adult that night, and then return to school, ready for the teacher-lead reading session the next day. Please discuss the text with your child as you read and highlight/ underline any vocabulary that they don’t understand.

Wider Reading:  The children have the opportunity to choose a book of their choice from either the school or their class library to encourage reading for pleasure and to strengthen their reading skills.  You can support your child’s learning by reading with and to them as often as possible and using a variety of texts, including magazines, comics and auditory texts.  In Y3/4, your child will also be given the opportunity to join the town library if they are not already a member and will have the opportunity to visit the library every term.

Other Homework:  Little, often and fun is the key!  Especially for core knowledge of spellings and retention of basic number facts.  See the table on the Y3/4 page for how often this homework is set but we encourage all parents to routinely practise with their children.

Please remember, if you need help or ideas on how to support your child with their homework, please see your child’s teacher who will be happy to help.
