Homework – Support from home

Homework is an important part of involving parents in their child’s learning.  At Fairfield we ensure that there are good links between home and school. In the Pre Prep, teachers communicate with parents via a Reading Diary which is used to record reading both at home and school.  Parents are informed on the topics covered in school via a letter every half term.

Parents are asked to hear their child read every day throughout the Pre Prep, as we believe strongly that reading forms the vital building blocks to learning.  To help children unlock the door to a world of words, the children in Reception take home key words and synthetic phonic cards.  This additional practice supports the learning to read process.  In addition, maths packs are sent home and parents are encouraged to support their children by playing maths games with them.

In Year 1, parents are informed weekly of the Literacy focus – Keyword spellings, Phonics sounds and Handwriting patterns.  The same also takes place in Numeracy – the Maths focus.  We suggest websites to parents which they might like to explore with their child.

Year 2’s receive weekly spelling which they are encouraged to learn at home.  The words follow a spelling pattern being taught in school.  Each week the learning objective in maths is sent home, via the reading record, and children are encouraged to practice some maths at home in a fun and stimulating way.

In Year 1 and Year 2, at Parents’ Evening in the Autumn, teachers hand out flyers which provide ideas for practical activities in both literacy and numeracy which can be enjoyed at home.  These activities are designed to be enjoyable for the family to take part in together.
