Encouraging Fearless Learners

How you can help your child


Reading is so important and we would love you to encourage and foster your child's love of this. Regularly listening to them reading aloud and mixing this with reading aloud to them are great ways to help encourage them. Asking different questions and discussing what they have read also promotes their understanding and enjoyment of the texts.

Below are some ideas for questions but feel free to make them as interesting as you wish!

Checking in with what they're learning in school and asking them to explain vocabulary/methods in maths/ grammar terms  is great for keeping your children on their toes and letting them be teacher! The termly pamphlet (in the classes menu then one of the options for year 5) is a basic overview of what the term will cover and if you would like to talk to us about units we are studying in subjects we'd be happy to help!
