Research shows that the most important thing you can do to help your child achieve at school is read with them. Little and often is the key!
There are three things that your child needs to learn to do:
1) Decode words
2) Understand what they have read
3) Enjoy it!
Reading with your child should be enjoyable. The more fun you have, the more likely you are to instil a love of reading. Encourage discussion with your child when reading with them. They will probably ask you some interesting questions, so don’t be afraid to stop reading and explore these further.
Home learning may be an extension of school learning, but may also involve activities that are not prescribed by the school, such as visiting a museum or reading a book from home. At Chandlers Field, we believe that it is also important that children have time after school to play and socialise.
We subscribe to the following online resources that we use in school. Children from Years 1-6 can also access these at home. Logins are given to the children by their class teacher.
