Every child is expected to read aloud to parents every night or for parents to read to them. In early years 10 minutes may be ample. With age and developing reading prowess then more time should be devoted to reading aloud. More general homework is given at the teacher’s discretion.
In Ks2 all pupils should be accessing our Doodle programs for maths, tables and spelling on a weekly basis at home.
Your child needs to talk about their school day, their expectations, their family and their concerns. They need you, as parents, to give the time to listen to them. Discussion such as this is vital for both spiritual and moral development. You, after all, are the model which your child will try to copy.
