SUPPORTING YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING

At The Croft Primary School, we really appreciate the support and time that parents give to help their children thrive within our school. Helping your child with their learning can be a daunting experience, so we have provided some information and resources in order to help you.

KS1 & KS2 SATs

In order to give children the best chance possible to become fluent readers within their time at school, children are taught to use synthetic phonics as a way of working out what unknown words are. Your child will be encouraged to learn letter sounds as well as the sounds of groups of letters, in order to use and apply them to read different words.

How Can I Help?

We are really grateful to the parents who spend time supporting the education of their child at home, and reading is one of the key areas where parents can help. The earlier children are exposed to books, the better they will perform with their reading, as well as with their use of their imagination and ability to be creative. We have provided a link to the following website which can provide activities and advice about how to use phonics at home.

Oxford Owl is a website that provides support, advice and activities for children who need help with their reading.
