Home Learning

There are lots of things you can do to support your child's learning at home. The number one activity of value is READING! Encourage your child to read regularly, read with your child and sign their school Reading Record regularly. Children have access to lots of books in school and local libraries offer a FREE sign-up and access to a huge range of books and other resources.

In Maths, we regularly use the following websites to practice our times tables and revise key areas of the maths national curriculum. Both websites are FREE to access, familiar for the children and engaging;
