Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

Helping Your Child At Home

We believe that spending good quality time with your child is the best homework you can do. Here’s a few ideas.

1. Talk to them, listen to them and ask questions about the things that interest them.

2. Read with them, listen to your child read and read to them too.

3. Go for a walk around your local area. What colours, shapes, letters or numbers do you see?

4. Play board games. Many games are excellent for building vocabulary, practising maths skills and having fun together.

5. Cook together, talk about healthy and unhealthy foods and what changes occur as we cook. This is a great way to learn some of our science vocabulary.

6. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter, find out about your child’s day and answer questions that could earn them Dojo’s.
