Supporting your child in Kestrel Class


Supporting your child at home

  • Reading – We hope that children are able to read aloud to an adult at least three times a week. This includes being able to discuss what they have been reading, including inferred meaning. Reading as often as possible will greatly support your child’s progress in reading and also other areas of the curriculum that require reading skills.
  • Mental maths skills – instant recall of number bonds and basic addition and subtraction facts i.e. knowing that 6 + 5 = 11 or 45 + 55 = 100 without having to work them out.
  • Times tables- Times tables help our understanding of many areas of maths. Children should aim to learn their tables so they can not only count in steps of that number but also rapidly answer questions out of sequence.
  • Spellings – Please support learning any spellings that your child brings home including understanding the meanings of the words when read in context. Click here for Parent Guidance:
