Supporting your child at home

Maths

We use the 'Times Tables Rockstars' website and paper worksheets to support your child's learning of multiplication and division facts.

Children have been given a login and this can be accessed at home and at school. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see the TT Rockstars parent guide or follow this link to watch a short video explaining the programme.

We follow the Maths No Problem! scheme for our maths lessons in school (please attend curriculum evening or see attached slides for more details). On occasion, we dip into some high quality resources from White Rose Maths. Follow this link for more details and for some FREE resources to support children at home- https://whiterosemaths.com/parent-resources.

 

English

Please support your child to practice their spellings at home. A spelling list is sent home half-termly with dates included. Please see school website- Curriculum Information - English - Spelling for additional copies if needed.

We encourage you to practice in a variety of exciting ways! Sometimes read the words out loud, sometimes draw them, use fancy pens, make the trickiest parts of the words stand out, anything to help your child to remember.

Reading books can be found online- https://ops.collinsopenpage.com/sso/login?service=https%3A//ebooks.collinsopenpage.com/wr/index.html&eulogin=true

Please support your child to read at least three times per week and record this in their reading record. Any problems accessing the site, please contact school and we can resolve and offer support.

Children LOVE their Bakewell Brilliant Books! Please enjoy them together and comment around once a week about this in your child's reading record.
