We know that many parents are keen to support their child's learning at home. We are always happy to speak to parents on an individual basis about things that could be extended at home. We also strongly believe that home learning works best when it is child led, as children have a natural curiosity to find things out! This is why in KS2 we have a topic project style homework (once per big term) that allows children to have a creative approach, with guidance and support provided by teaching staff. In KS1 we recommend regular reading with your child and daily practice of key maths skills like counting, ordering, 2, 5 and 10 times table.
The expectations of the national curriculum are extremely demanding. If you do wish to support your child further at home with some of the core skills needed in school, here are some useful links that you can use. For some of these websites a login is required which class teachers can provide.
