Parents as Partners

Parents as Partners

 

At St Mary's we recognise the importance of parents as partners.

We do not set 'homework' in Year 1 as we recognise that children are learning all the time and celebrate the importance of extra curricular activities to your child's development.

To support you child at home they could learn nursery rhymes, songs and read books together. Talk about the difference between pictures and words, titles, authors’ names and predict what will happen next in the story. Read poems and rhymes and information books as well as stories. Children will have letter work to do at home and games to play. Once children can read, they should read their school book every day for approximately five minutes every single day.

We ask that you read with your child every day to help your child develop good literacy skills and promote a love of reading.
