How to help your child at home

This part of the website will have details of activities to do at home, how you can help your child and information about procedures in school.  It also contains useful numbers for parents and contact details of outside agencies that can offer support to families.

Giving your child little messages to pass on or three things on your shopping list to get will help with memory tasks. Reading the time or asking how long is it until the bus comes will help with the use of the clock. Learning times tables and daily reading is a very important way of helping your child progress.books

Please come into school to talk with the class teacher if you would like further information.

Please use the websites listed below to help your child with their learning at home.
