Parental Involvement / Home Learning Opportunities

Parental Involvement

 

Every parent, guardian and carer can help inspire their child to develop the confidence they need to succeed in Writing, for example by:

 

  • helping them practice their spellings.
  • attending one of our Phonics Workshops in KS1.
  • showing your child that you like writing, giving them the confidence they need to enjoy it too.
  • giving your child real opportunities to write at home e.g. a shopping list, a thank you letter, a postcard, an email, an invitation etc.
  • looking for interesting words and talking about their meanings when reading together or  watching television.
  • looking out for spelling, grammar or punctuation mistakes when out and about (misplaced  apostrophes are always a good one to look out for!)
