Ideas to support Homework
It would be helpful to encourage your children to work with their weekly diary and help with the specifics of tasks and due dates. This will prepare them for transition to high school. Work on times tables recall and the four basic processes is also a great way to support your child and using Easimaths at home gives a great structure for this. Children also have the Learn It's in their homework jotter which should be constantly revised.If.there are any questions about homework please feel free to put a note in the diary or contact myself at the school, where I will hopefully be able to help. Below you will find websites that will help with revision and support:
