How to help your child

Please have a look through this section for resources that may support you to help your child with their learning at home.  The pages here will also help you understand what it is that children should be able to do at their age and offer some advice in how you can help your child to reach those goals.  Amongst other things, we include here:

  • Letter formation sheet (which shows how we write in our 'pre-cursive' style)
  • Videos to show how we say our phonics sounds
  • Some maths songs to help learn our 2s, 5s and 10s.
