Research has shown that parental support can play a huge role in a child’s education, and here are a few suggestions of things that you can do to help:
Your child should have a banded book or a book of their choice if they are a free reader. Listening to children read aloud helps with their fluency and expression. Please have a look at recommended reads on your child’s class page for books linked to the topic they are studying in school.
Also, you may like to have a look at The Book Trust’s 100 Recommended Reads for Children!
Please log in to Letter Join to help support your child with their letter formation and handwriting.
The school have access to My Maths and work will be set here that the children can do to support their learning should they wish.
Learning your times tables supports so many more areas of mathematics. By the end of Year 2, the children should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and division facts. In Year 3, the children will learn their 3, 4 and 8 times tables. By the end of Year 4, children should know their times tables up to 12 x 12.
Here are some great ways to practice:

Cooking and baking with the children is a fantastic way to support them in reading and mathematics.
Researching their topic to support their learning in class.
Building and making models or art work linked to their learning.
