At Larkrise, we understand that parents and carers play a crucial role in supporting their children’s learning. We know that levels of parental engagement are consistently associated with children’s academic outcomes. As a result, this page provides suggestions and support for parents to engage with their children's learning.
Reading at Home
One of the best ways to support your child at home with learning is to read regularly and widely. We recommend children read books to an adult as much as possible and record in their reading record book. It is also important for children to listen to adults read books for pleasure. This may be a fiction or non fiction book, a picture book or chapter book, but most importantly it should be a book that you can share and enjoy together.
Children who are at the early stages of reading will receive a phonics card with sounds and phonetically decodable words. Your child should practise the sounds and then sound out, blend and read the words. Class teachers keep a similar record in school and inform parents when each child is ready to move on to the next phase of sounds and words.
Below you will find information and links to resources that can offer support for reading at home:
Support with Home Learning
Class teachers can be contacted via Class Dojo or telephone to discuss activities related to home learning. We will continue to add information and resources to support parents to engage with their children's learning on this page so please do check back regularly.
