What can I do at home to support my child?
Each child will have a Home/School folder, a reading book and a bookmark. These should be in school every day and checked regularly as they enable us to send home any letters or children’s homework safely. Our expectation for reading is that the children should read frequently. Bookmarks should be completed by children supported by parents if necessary. A class reading record will be kept in school. Reading records will be checked regularly and feedback given when necessary. Please practise the relevant facts with your child. Children will be set a termly homework project based around what they are doing in class. Children will have the whole term to complete the task. Tricky words will be given out at the beginning of each term and tested at the end of term.
What is the best way to communicate with school?
We will be using the Class Dojo system again this year. Please ensure, that you are signed up to use this. The Dojo System is a great way for us to communicate with you and keep you informed about your child’s activities and achievements. We ask that you use the message facility to inform us of any appointments, changes to pick up arrangements or any specific information about your child. Absences and urgent messages only should be communicated with the office. We will check our message folder before school starts and again at lunchtime. All children’s homework will be posted on their portfolios and we will use this platform to set work and communicate if remote learning is necessary.
