It is really important that you…
- Listen to your child read as often as possible.
For the younger children, we would expect this to be every day and as their ability progresses in the older year groups, you will find they need less support from you and will love to pick up a book for pleasure. We would still recommend hearing them read and sharing books with them three times a week and hope you will see this as a relaxing, positive time where you focus purely on this one task.
- Give your child daily practice time on Times Tables Rockstars or Numbots.
This will significantly improve your child’s mental recall and fluency, which translates directly into their understanding during maths lessons.
- Spend time supporting your child in learning their spellings or phonics. Use Speling Shed regularly.
Within school, we practise these three vital skills daily, but the advantages for those children who are supported at home are vast. They are three fundamental skills that only take a small amount of time within the day. Please make them a priority for your child.
