How to Help Your Child

  • Practise mental maths (little and often is best), including applying skills to word problems.
  • Encourage joined up writing that is consistent in size and sits on the line.
  • Try to read with your child everyday, this is the best way to build their confidence.
  • Keep up-to-date with communication from school via Class Dojo and the Newsletters.

General Information
