Parent Support

We usually host 'Learning Alongside Workshops' throughout the year. The current circumstances make it hard for us to do this so to support we will publish key support documents and save them here.

Learning Support Resources 

Welcome to Bug Club - Please note we use more than just Bug Club books in school and we do not use colour banding as our home reading scheme is more closely linked to Letters and Sounds.

Reading at Home

Reading is incredibly important for all children, but especially important for children aged 5-7. At this age children are acquiring essential reading skills that will support them accessing the curriculum and flourishing in older year groups. We expect all our children to be read with by an adult at home at least 3 times a week, and we try to match this in school. It is incredibly important to us that we send home reading books that are engaging and linked to phonic ability. If you have any concerns about the book banding or difficulty of text please speak to us. 

Our home reading scheme is called Bug Club. All books are banded and children are moved on appropriately. All children have access to dozens of Bug Club ebooks and quizzes. The online resources are linked directly to the class teacher, so she can see exactly who has read what and any quiz results!

Number Fluency

We follow the mastery approach to maths. This means we want children to be able to represent, reason and manipulate numbers in a variety of different ways. Although counting is essential we no longer focus on progressing through to larger numbers so quickly. In order for children to be able to succeed in mathematics we need them to have a very secure understanding of the number system. We have purchased a mastery linked app called Numbots. All children have login details and should be encouraged to play these games regularly. The content of the games is carefully matched to calculation and representation models used in school; such as, the part whole approach and the bar model. Alphablocks on Cbeebies also follows the same ethos. 

Exceptional Homework

We are extremely proud and thankful for the interest our children show in learning at home. Below are some of the amazing pieces of homework our children have produced.
