Ways to help your child at home

  • In order to promote regular reading, we ask every child to read for at least twenty minutes a day at home. This could be independent reading, reading with a sibling or adult or shared reading (you read a bit, they read a bit). Please ensure that the new reading records are signed every time they read. For every five entries in the reading record, children will earn a raffle ticket which gives them the chance to win a book at the end of each term.

  • Encourage children to blend words that they find tricky and ask questions to check their reading comprehension. 
  • Practise Lexia (if this applies to your child).

  • Practise spellings regularly.

  • Practise Times Tables using Times Table Rockstars.

  • Practise mental addition/subtraction and number bonds with Numbots (Same login as TTRockstars).

  • Use Doodle, little and often, to support your child's progression in Maths, English and Spelling.

  • For your mental health, use Headspace Mindfulness website. There are many great techniques for calming a busy mind and centering yourself.

  • Keep up with your children's right to be informed by watching a kid-friendly news programme each day. Click here for CBBC Newsround or here for the Good News Network. 

  • Watch these TED talks about different aspects of the Growth Mindset. Then watch them again :)
