Parent Information

  Parent Summary

At Wimboldsley Primary School we feel that the home-school partnership is fundamental to the positive education of children.



How you can support your child's learning?

You can use the guides on our website to support your child to learn more at home.


We are proud users of Marvellous Me; a home-school communication app that is free to use and easy to access.  Ensure you sign up to receive updates about what your child has been learning and any badges they may have earnt. If you are pleased with what you see, High 5 back!


One of the most impactful ways you can help your child, is to read each day. Children should be encouraged to read aloud as well as on their own and may enjoy being read to on occasions. We do stress the importance of reading. This could be fiction, non-fiction, magazines, websites, instructions - even listening to a story on a CD, talking book; it all counts!  A variety of different reading activities and texts is important for your child to broaden their skills.

A minimum of 10-15 minutes daily reading is expected.


Reading aloud to an adult is encouraged, even for older children. Also very important is discussing the texts with the child e.g. asking questions about the characters in a book, the layout of a factual book and the views of a website or magazine.



Quick recollection of number bonds and times tables are important. All times table facts should be known at the end of Year 4 - this means being able to say the answer to a multiplication or division question within five seconds. Practice learning tables in preparation for tables tests - don't forget that division facts should also be known.


Practice in the car, walking to school; every little helps.   Daily practice for a short while is more effective than 'cramming' last minute



Parents/Carers could also work with their child by using the words in written sentences or stories (to also practice handwriting and punctuation) or even in conversations (speaking and listening for the words).



This involves a creative piece of open-ended work based around the children's topic work or another aspect of learning. The work can be presented in any way by the child Please read below for more information regarding this.

Be as creative as you like! Talk with your child to generate ideas. Could the homework be in the form of a poster, a letter, a comic strip, some writing, a Powerpoint...? Could it use photos, drawings, fold-out extras on the page...?


We are aware that many of our families have access to computers, Kindles, iPads etc.... therefore we have put a list of websites and apps together that you may find useful.
