Supporting your child
Supporting your child with their learning at home is an important partnership. We want to help you to help your child. Throughout the year we hold various events to support you, from reading workshops to e-safety events. Please do take advantage of these opportunities to work with us.
Below are links to resources we have produced that we hope will be of use to you.
If you have any questions about supporting your child, please ask to your child's class teacher.
Parent Help Sheets
These have been produced as generic help sheets. If you have a specific question or issue with helping your child at home please ask your child's class teacher or speak to our Family Support Worker, Amanda Wilson.

Thank you to the parents whom attended our Maths and Girls workshop on the 27th of February. The feedback was incredibly positive and included some useful suggestions about how we can help you to continue to support your children at home.
Parents' comments included:
"Really enjoyed learning about brain science and also to praise good work, not a clever child."
"I have a better understanding of what we can do in the future to combat negative views."
"An interesting evening and good to understand and know how we can help and support our children's learning."
"I felt it was a very positive and practical session."
"I came away feeling motivated and very keen to enjoy maths with my daughter, thank you."
One of the suggestions from parents, was to have a Maths Glossary to support parental understanding of the terminology currently in use. Whilst looking at ideas for creating our own version, we came across this fabulous website, which includes clear definitions and models and images. Please use the link below to access. Feel free to contact the Maths Team if you require further clarification.
