How can I help my child?

How can I help my child?

 

Continue to encourage your child to develop skills of independence such as:

 

  • Looking after their belongings
  • Having all the equipment ready that they need for a task and using resources carefully
  • Setting their work out appropriately with the date and learning intention underlined 
  • Organising their P.E and swimming kit
  • Handing home learning in on time                                                                 
  • Using a dictionary, word bank or thesaurus as needed

 

Practise:

 

  • Reading, writing and ordering numbers to 1000 including decimals
  • Counting on or back in tens and hundreds from any two or three digit number
  • Knowing by heart all the addition and subtraction facts for each number to 20
  • Knowing by heart multiplication and division facts for all the multiplication tables up to 12
  • Using contents, indexes and glossaries
  • Asking them questions about their reading books such as “How did the person feel and what would you have felt like?” which encourages them to think and reason
  • Asking if they can think of another word that means the same as one of those they have read

 

Remember to:

 

  • Share their school reading book with them
  • Encourage them to complete home learning tasks neatly and to the best of their ability
  • Go to the local library
  • Help them to remember the Children’s Promise contained in the Home/School Planner
  • Maintain a regular routine for school days
  • Fill your child’s water bottle with fresh water, NOT squash or juice please
  • Make sure your child has their PE kit in school every day
  • Send your child to school with a coat or jacket when necessary
  • Ensure all uniform, PE kit, coats and lunch boxes are named.
