Areas of improvement How parents and carers can help at home

Maths through

problem solving

* Ensure your child completes their maths homework every week.

* Encourage your child to login to Educationcity and play the maths games 

* Come along to a parent workshop on maths planned for later in the term.

* Ensure your child regularly practises the key maths skills listed at the bottom of every weekly maths homework sheet. Good mental maths skills are the key to successful mathematicians!

Developing the

new

assessment

system

* Talk to your child about their learning at school.  

* Encourage your child to work hard on their topic homework including the writing aspect.

* Buy them a green pen so they can edit their homework before handing it in – it’s amazing what they will do if offered a gel pen to write in!  

* Use the green ‘Supporting your child’s learning’ leaflet to know what your child should be achieving by the end of the year. These are available from http://www.stjohnsandstclements.org.uk/Parents/Parent-Workshops-supporting-your-child/ 

Develop

outdoor

learning/ forest

school practice

in Reception

and KS1

* Do you have any old welly boots / waterproofs that would fit Reception / Y1 children that your family no longer needs? We’d love any handouts!

* Do you have landscaping / building / forest / gardening / project planning skills? Volunteer for the outdoor forest school area working party – please email Mrs Alexander.  headteacher@st-johns-st-clement.southwark.sch.uk  

Development

of sport at all

levels

* Ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times! You’d be surprised how many children claim to have no PE kit in school!

* Encourage your child to sign up to after school sports clubs

* Come and offer to run an after school sport club for the children (any sport you like!), we would love to hear from you!

Embedding of

learning skills

* Talk to your child about their learning skills, e.g. noticing, perseverance, empathy

* Attend a parent workshop about learning skills (planned for Spring 2016)
