HOW TO HELP YOUR CHILD AT HOME

Subject

 

How your child can support their progress at home

Literacy

 

  • Ask your child about their individual targets. All children should be using vocabulary to support the reader (full stops, capital letters, commas and more!).
  • Read through your child’s homework with them to ensure it makes sense before handing it in. 
  • Encourage your child to use a variety of vocabulary in their writing to make it more interesting.
  • Practice spellings every week and put them into sentences.
  • Read with your children daily and scan the QR code to show that they read to an adult.

Maths

 

  • Ensure your child is confident with their times tables – this will support all areas of mathematical learning.
  • Ask your child daily what they have learnt in mathematics and see if they can explain the method they have learnt.  This will help to consolidate their learning.  It is also important that your child can apply their knowledge to word problems.

Science

 

Research their current topic in science and see if there are any cool experiments to do at home!

History/ Geography

 

Research their current topic in history or geography and help them to understand where these events would go on a timeline

RE

 

Research their current topic - see what you can learn about and then share your new knowledge in school.

Music

 

Explore a range of music with your child to see which they are most interested in.  You can also look at the origins of the music.
